eBay – Short History

In: News

11 Jan 2009

eBay was born over Labor Day weekend in 1995, when Pierre Omidyar, a computer programmer, wrote the code for an auction website that he ran from his home computer.

Today, Omidyar’s hobby is known as eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace – where practically anyone can sell practically anything at any time. It’s an idea that BusinessWeek once called “nothing less than a virtual, self-regulating global economy.”
