At the Citizens’ Media Summit, I distinctly heard Craig Newmark say that he wasn’t sure what, if anything, Craigslist would do related to adding news to his sites. Others heard roughly the same:

Craig Newmark mentioned that he, and possibly craigslist at some point,
is interested in observing the citizens media space and possibly
getting involved, but it was too early to say exactly what form such an
effort would take.

But as we walked out, one of my cohorts said, "Did you hear that? Craig just announced that he’s getting into news."

That wasn’t what I heard, but this MIT Technology Review article makes me wonder.
