Pierre Omidyar Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Pierre Morad Omidyar (Persian: , created June 21, 1967) is a French-Iranian-American entrepreneur and philanthropist, who’s the creator and chairman of the eBay auction website. Omidyar and his wife Pamela are well known philanthropists who founded Omidyar Network in 2004 as a way to expand their efforts beyond nonprofits to contain for-profits and public policy. In 2013, he declared he’d be creating and funding First Look Media, a journalism enterprise to contain Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill.

His dad was a surgeon. The family moved to the U.S. when Omidyar was a kid. Omidyar’s interest in computers started while he was a pupil at The Potomac School in McLean, Virginia, in the ninth grade. Soon after, Omidyar went to work for Claris, an Apple Computer subsidiary company, where he worked on the team updating MacDraw to MacDraw II. In 1991, he co-founded Ink Development, a pen-based computing startup that afterwards was rebranded as an ecommerce business and renamed eShop. In 1995, in the age of 28, Omidyar started to write the first computer code for a web-based place to empower the listing of an immediate person to person auction for collectible things. He created a simple image on his personal website, as well as on Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 1995, he started an online service called, Auction Web, which will finally end up being the auction website eBay. The service was hosted on a server Omidyar had created for informative data on the ebola virus. The very first thing sold on the website proved to be a broken laser pointer. Omidyar was astonished that anyone would cover the apparatus in its broken state, but the buyer promised him that he was intentionally gathering broken laser pointers. Similar surprises followed. The company burst as correspondents started to register trade goods of an unbelievable variety.
