Due to the timing of the sale of Knight Ridder to McClatchy, Craig was questioned if he felt somewhat responsible for Knight Ridder's sale due to Craigslist's plummeting of the bay area print classified advertising revenue model. Could Craig's keynote have come at a more perfect time?
For easy-to-follow bullet points from the keynote check out this post by Will Pate. For a more in-depth recap visit Unbeige as they go on to explain a design session where Craigslist is given a design makeover producing, Craigslist2.0. Auscillate also posted highlights in a Q&A format. I looked for a podcast of the keynote and could not find one but do expect one to surface soon.
