If you can suffer David Weinburger’s questioning and meandering, there’s an insightful audio interview with Craid Newmark of Craigslist on Wired’s Epicenter blog. Newmark explains that Craigslist started as a site to list arts and technology events in San Francisco and the evolution is totally based on user feedback. It’s a return to basics and it’s just supplying people’s needs by listening and providing great customer service.

Newmark also talks about Markets Are Conversations and the effect on the market including Wikipedia. He also says that Wikipedia and Craigslist both have a culture of trust and that the power is flowing from small groups of people to larger groups of people but are attacked by both professionals that try to create disinformation and scammers “out of Washington DC”.
