Quote of the day: Craig Newmark's no Batman

Craigslist.org founder Craig Newmark, speaking to a group of law students Friday, downplayed his own role in Internet crime-fighting, saying he's more of an advocate than a hero. "I don't think I'm Batman," he said. "I'm more like McGruff the crime dog."

Newmark's comments were made on the inaugural celebration of OneWebDay, a worldwide tribute to online life. He spoke about the importance of freedom of speech and information, as well as the Internet's potential as a people-powered crime-fighting tool. Read more about his address and OneWebDay here.
