Social Media: The New Frontier of Global Leadership

A discussion with Craig Newmark

Julius S. Held Lecture Hall, 304 Barnard Hall

Craig Newmark, Internet pioneer and founder of craigslist, one of the world's most widely used websites, will let you in on how he went from being a nerd and an outsider to his decision to forego big-money Silicon Valley in favor of "doing well by doing good." And he learned a few lessons along the way-basics like knowing when enough is enough, and treating people like you want to be treated. In 2011, Craig launched craigconnects, his initiative to link up everyone on the planet using the Internet to bear witness to good efforts and encourage the same behavior in others. From helping nonprofits with social media to empowering billions of people to work together, he shows no sign of stopping, planning to "boldly go where no nerd has gone before."
