Chris Nolan & LA Times piece on Craig Newmark

I didn’t say anything about this week’s LA Times piece on Craig Newmark because I didn’t know what to say–while it was thrilling to see Craig’s List get coverage, the piece kinda had that celebrity feature gloss that devalues long-term development efforts like Craig’s.
Now Chris Nolan has written a post about the story that totally gets it right–
“So let’s ask the question the LATimes didn’t ask as it dissed my informed guess: Where do you think those job ads would be going if there weren’t going to Craigslist? To newspapers. Newspapers just like the LATimes which, despite its numerous Pulitzer Prizes this year, must cut its staff.”
