Craig Killed the News

Rewind to 1993 in San Francisco, California. Craig Newmark was a Case Western Reserve computer science graduate working at IBM for nearly 17 years and moved on to work at several contract jobs until introduced to the world wide web by a coworker at Charles Schwab. Craig was fascinated with the internet and he was anxious to build something online. Soon, Craig launched a mailing list that morphed into Craigslist.org.
