Today, Craigslist serves nearly 200 cities around the world, where it's become a must-read for anyone looking for jobs, housing or even love. Newmark shares some perspectives in his interview with CNN
The Internet's biggest impact has been in craig's mid - The Internet connects people for whatever they want to connect - for commerce, for socializing; it's all working. The deeper answer is that the Internet is allowing people of goodwill to realize that most everyone is OK, means well and wants to get along. And it's allowing people of goodwill to connect to deal with bigger problems.People using the Web are starting to speak truth to power in the way that the press used to. And they're backing it up with fact-checking, investigative reporting and that kind of thing. And that's really important. Traditional journalism with citizen journalism - get them together - that's going to be the dominant mode in the future.
The big lesson for him on the Internet - the big lesson running Craigslist and doing customer service - is that people everywhere are overwhelmingly trustworthy and good and moral.
On the change in the internet in the next decade- craig thinks the big change will be the way it delivers news and entertainment. And as the news industry changes, I think it's going to restore good government.... It's already happening.
