Craig Alexander Newmark (born in 1952) is an Internet entrepreneur best known for founding San Francisco-based website craigslist and shaking up the classified advertising business.

Upon graduation he attended college at Case Western Reserve University.
As a senior Web-oriented software engineer, with around twenty-five years of experience (including 18 years at IBM), he has become a leader in online community by virtue of running www.craigslist.org for over 9 years. He's compiled extensive experience evangelizing, leading and building, including work at Bank of America and Charles Schwab.

In 1995, he started craigslist which serves as a non-commercial community bulletin board with classifieds and discussion forums. Using a common sense, down-to-earth approach, craigslist strives to make the 'net more personal and authentic, while advocating social responsibility through the promotion of small, non-profit organizations.

Game of Thrones Guy, George R. R. Martin, Opposes Attacks on Voting Rights t is one thing to attempt to win elections. But trying to do so by denying the most basic and important right of any American citizen to hundreds and thousands of people, on entirely spurious grounds... that goes beyond reprehensible. That is despicable.
