Craig Newmark. It's worth starting a new company if only that it may become a means by which one can better get to know Craig Newmark. He of course needs no introduction from me. If you ask him about his involvement with CarHarbor, the first thing he'll probably say is that this is something he's involved with on a personal level and that it's not related to his responsibilities at craigslist. No one understands the dynamics of online community better than Craig, and I greatly value his insights as we craft a tool that can help solve one of those everyday problems we all face. Craig has shown us all how we can cooperate to create a better world and I hope CarHarbor can represent yet another expression of that ideology.
Jim Lazarus. Jim offers a clear-eyed view of the potential and the challenges involved in bringing to market a tool that can improve the quality of a municipality. As the former Deputy Mayor and City Attorney of San Francisco under Dianne Feinstein, he brings a wealth of perspective to our mission. He has distinguished himself in both the public and private arenas. Among other duties, he serves on the Board of the San Francisco Urban Research & Planning Association (SPUR) and just recently joined the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce as their head of Public Policy.
Scott Rafer. Scott is an entrepreneur's entrepreneur. He is often at least three steps ahead of people in conversation, and thankfully he's gracious while waiting for you to catch up. People who follow the broad social software revolution roundly applaud the way in which he got Feedster established in a fast evolving and very promising sector. He's got several interesting projects on his plate, especially one involving a company called WirelessInk, where he is Chairman. He's a very welcome member of the CarHarbor Advisory Board.
