Pierre Omidyar, Liar

The founder of eBay, Pierre Omidyar, used to work for me -- including when he started eBay (back when it was still known as AuctionWeb).

There's a lot of both the eBay and Omidyar legacies that are actually either blatant lies, or grossly exaggerated. Once it was clear that eBay was going to make it he said to me, "EBay isn't the kind of company that would ever run TV commercials."

Guess what I just saw?
