Craig Newmark has always remained true to what he calls his “nerd values” - the belief that one should make enough money to care for family, friends, and oneself (with the occasional luxury thrown in), and that one should do something to make a difference. From the moment he founded craigslist as a side project, for fun, he has always focused on making sure that the focus is on helping others and then doing well by doing good.
In the last few years, Craig has turned his attention to another aspect of his “nerd values”: sending the elevator back down. He is focused on helping others climb the ladder, lending his reputation and name (as well as financial support) to philanthropy efforts, including getting more women in tech.
