GEL 2006 - Craig Newmark

Craig Newmark, of craigslist fame, had some good advice for those attending the GEL 2006 Conference. The two key points of advice were:
Do a lot of listening.
Stay out of the way.
He admitted, "I have absolutely no vision".
He believes that "people are overwhelming good and trustworthy".
He acknowledged that craigslist helps people to tap into "hidden potential".
He quoted Oscar Wilde: "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh; otherwise they'll kill you."
Craig is a simple guy (and that is not a negative by any means) who is devoted to taking care of details and doing well. He headed off to do some customer service after his talk. He claimed that he'll do customer service until the day he dies.
There is nothing wrong with that approach. He has earned his success.
