Craig Newmark's First Announcement Email
The site has come a long way from the day he listed any items that striked his fancy.
A friend of Craig Newmark dug out the first email he sent out in 1995 about a simple webpage he had put together called Craigslist.
web.58.96: Craig Newmark (cnewmark) Tue 28 Mar 95 06:23 Well, I just went ahead and built a home page:
My focus, on this page, is on events around San Francisco that involve arts and technology, privacy rights, local writers and artists, and any other item that strikes my fancy. This includes stuff like the Anon Salon, Spoonman's TeleCircus, Joe's Digital Diner, Eric's Jacking In series, the upcoming conference on Feminist Activism and Art, etc.
