In 1995, Craig Newmark started craigslist which serves as a non-commercial community bulletin board with classifieds and discussion forums. Using a common sense, down-to-earth approach, craigslist strives to make the 'net more personal and authentic, while advocating social responsibility through the promotion of small, non-profit organizations. The philosophical themes of craigslist are:
*We're about people giving each other a break;
*We're about restoring the human voice to the Internet, reversing the corporate voice and over commercialization;
*We're about providing useful, down-to-earth, common-sense function.
As a result of this attitude, Craig is now recognized as one of the true pioneers of online communities.
