Craig Newmark Launches Social Responsible Craigconnects

Craigslist founder Craig Newmark has launched a new website called Craigconnects. In a press release, it appears that Craigconnects is intended to serve as a platform for social responsibility and promote sustainable development organizations. “I guess I got myself a ‘bully pulpit’ of sorts that I don’t really want or need, but it’s good for getting the word out about people of good will who get stuff done,” said Newmark. “It’s a voice for the grassroots, the rank-and-file, for people who never had a voice until now.” Through Craigconnects, Newmark can be solicited as a speaker and traditional media source.
