Craig Newmark, the pioneer behind Craigslist (and the bane of every newspaper's classifieds section) has just launched his latest project, CraigConnects.org
. The site is dedicated to highlighting "good, effective nonprofits
" and connecting them with other organizations, donors and volunteers. The site will also serve as a watchdog, identifying fake non-profits and scams. The site is live now, and the first featured organization is Donors Choose.
