Jim Buckmaster
Since 2000 Jim Buckmaster has led craigslist to be the most used classifieds service in any medium with over 10 million new ads and over 5 billion page views per month, while maintaining its renowned public service mission, unorthodox business philosophy, non-corporate vibe, and staff of 20.

Buckmaster served as craigslist's lead programmer and CTO, contributing the site's multicity architecture, search engine, discussion forums, flagging system, self-posting process, homepage design, personals categories, and best-of-craigslist.

Before joining craigslist, Buckmaster directed web development for Creditland (defunct) and Quantum. In 1994-95, he built what may have been the world's largest web site at the time, a terabyte-scale database-driven public web site for ICPSR at at the University of Michigan.

Buckmaster graduated summa cum laude from Virginia Tech with a bachelors in biochemistry, and studied medicine and classics at the University of Michigan.

He has been the subject of feature stories in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fortune, BusinessWeek, Telegraph, SF Chronicle, and many other publications; been interviewed for dozens of television and radio programs; and is possibly the only American CEO ever accused in major business periodicals of being anti-establishment, a communist, a socialist, and an anarchist.
