About Craig Newmark | Craig is a hardcore Java and Web programmer who grew up wearing a plastic pocket protector and thick, black glasses, taped together, the full nerd cliché. He started craigslist in early ʼ95 as a means of connecting people better by letting them know about cool or useful events happening around San Francisco. It rapidly grew and built a large community of people who wonder if there really is someone named Craig involved with this. He ainʼt no big deal.
