A day in the life of Craig Newmark
Some of you may remember my near obsession with Craigslist a few entries back. And who could blame me? I know of hundreds of people that couldn’t have survived in this City without such a resource. I have gotten jobs and internships because of Craigslist. In a matter of 2-3 months, I’ve had about five job interviews thanks to Craigslist. And while I personally haven’t used Craigslist to find an apartment or a house, I know plenty who have. And… well, the list goes on as to how awesome Craigslist is, from the awesome community, to the wealth of resources. This is why Craig Newmark is, in my view, one of the Bay Area’s greatest saviors.
So it is with delight when I found this article about A day in the life of Craig Newmark. It’s surprisingly detailed, chronicling his routine from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. in a single day. Reading the article just makes me like the man even more (A Daily Show and a Kate Spade fan? A man after my own heart.) Fab stuff. If you’re a Craigslist-a-holic like I am, you really should read this.
PS. FYI, Craig also has his own most-excellent blog.
