Craigslist Founder To Wing It for Commencement

Posted By Christine Borden On May 11, 2008 @ 10:22 pm In News | Comments Disabled

BallerCraig Newmark, the founder of craigslist [1], will deliver the Commencement Convocation speech Tuesday, May 13. His special treat to graduating seniors? He’ll be making it up on the spot.

NewsCenter [2] reports that Newmark will emphasize three main points in his speech:

1. Follow in my footsteps: “Never read a prepared speech unless you’re good at it.”

2. Wanna know corporate life? (No.) Read Dilbert.

3. When in doubt, quote Shakespeare: “Brevity is the soul of wit.”

We’d also like to add a No. 4: Never use craigslist casual encounters when drunk.

The event begins at 4 p.m. at the Greek Theatre. Congratulations to all those graduating!
