Did eBay steal my idea?

October 20, 2007 10:34 pm

I suppose many of us look back in hindsight and think, “what if…”

I had this thought only today as I was links to my site. In my research I discovered a link from a 1995 NCSA Mosaic web page listing an old site of mine. The page was an idea I had of starting up a site so people could buy and sell online. At the time I didn’t know a small company called eBay was also pursuing a similar idea.

The image below is an excerpt from the actual page. Click the image to view the complete page.
