Craig Newmark of Craigslist talks about his seed donation to newassignment.net , Jay Rosen's new adventure in a professional and citizen journalism hybrid.
I went to San Francisco to do a profile on the craigslist foundation, and Craig Newmark was kind enough to give me some time.
He spoke about newassignment.net and I wanted to post this report.
I shot it with two cameras, an HDSony and my laptop cam. I focused the HD on Craig, and the laptop on me. Unfortunately, I bumped the laptop, and the picture is not framed well. However, Craig looks great. After all the years on the soap opera, perhaps I am maturing by making everyone else look better.
He is so well spoken and caring, he will always look great.
To find out more about newassignment.net you may visit its website.
I did get over to the craigslist foundation in the afternoon and visited with Darian Heyman. I will bring that report in the future.
