Hey there – last week I posted about craigconnects’ mention in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, but didn’t realize I missed a few:
This article links to a video clip where I talk with Donors Choose: One Charity’s Board Adds Up to an Internet Brain Trust

A little bit of what they have to say:
Craig Newmark, who started Craigslist as a hobby in 1995, has recently given to Internet connectivity projects in Kenya, Haiti, and veterans centers in San Francisco. He pledged $100,000 to a similar project for vocational schools in the West Bank.
I appreciate it, and the deal is, I just want to help good people.
