Craig Newmark's explanation of the site’s evolution (or lack thereof) is surprisingly simple.

I read the article and still have no clue no real reason. The conclusion is that the site look did not change because it is still functional.

Yes, title is pretty popmpous and I would prefer better one like “Interview with Craiglist founder” but I enjoyed interview with Craig. It has some “good old days” feeling. But clickbite rulz this days.

Craigslist has long held a philosophy of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” when it comes to their design and layout. Aside from some small quality-of-life changes, the site really hasn’t needed to make major adjustments the way that social media platforms have.
