In 1995, Pierre Omidyar wrote the code for the website that would eventually become the most well-known auction site on the internet. Remember how insane people were about eBay?! They were selling everything on it, and there were even stores where people would sell your stuff for you. It was a lot. But when eBay first started, it was actually called AuctionWeb.
