Craig Newmark, interviewed by Jim Wales

Craig Newmark, Craigslist

Originally uploaded by podcastator.

I don’t know if there’s a more sexy combination of web geeks than Craig Newmark of Craigslist on a stage with his interviewer, Jim Wales of Wikipedia.

Newmark admits to being a stereotypical geek in his college days, with the glasses taped together, the pocket protector, and the poor social skills. He also admits to not being political, and to being more interested in customer service than in being a CEO-type (Wales concurred here).

And if you’re dying to know, when asked about how Craigslist will expand their quest for world domintion, Newmark said to expect his service to provide … more of the same (more cities, not many more features/categories).
