Reuters: "will there be a craigslist of news?"

... "Alan, wisely - threw the question to Craig Newmark who was in the audience. Long silence, and then craig said - 'not from us.' That was all he's say - turning the conversation to the 'ducks on the lawn.' Funny."

I wouldn't be so quick to laugh... makes me wonder whether Craig's got something up his sleeve again... (I wouldn't be surprised, for instance, if at some point he would lend craigslist's infrastructure to some other entity for new gathering purposes... -- if you are interested in this line of thinking just search for his previous statements on the issue, it seems to me that he has at least considered the option in the past, in the context of Daylife if I'm not mistaken...)
