WebmasterWorld Pubcon opened up today with opening remarks from Brett Tabke and a keynote presentation by Craig Newmark of craigslist.
“There’s nothing alturistic about craigslist”
As often happens with companies that grow successfully, founder Craig Newmark is not running craigslist any longer. Turns out his skills are better served working customer service.
Craig started things out by sharing the history of craigslist to a huge crowd in a cavernous room at the Las Vegas Convention center. This also included the disclosure that he did wear a plastic pocket protector and the black glasses taped together along with the social skills that go with the stereotype. But then moved to San Francisco.
