Die SFWeekly.com bietet eine wunderbare Story auf 9 Screenseiten (!) zu Newmark und seinem neuem Vorhaben, Craig$list.com :
The much-loved Web site is taking millions from Bay Area newspapers and causing layoffs that adversely affect coverage. And its founder’s well-intentioned support of citizen journalism has a slim chance of fixing the problem… There’s an e-mail from his nutritionist, who has analyzed data from the pedometer that inhabits Newmark’s pocket. „Over the course of two-thirds of the year, I averaged 8,300 steps a day,“ Newmark says, „but in the last two weeks, I averaged 9,800.“ His sense of humor is so dry, it’s unclear whether he is actually proud of this, and if he is aware that reciting it makes him sound like Rain Man. It’s hard to believe this is the Craig Newmark, the Robin Hood of the Internet, who’s now sending shock waves through the newspaper industry and becoming a major voice in a movement to reshape the media.
