Clues To The Direction Of Pierre Omidyar's $250m News Media Mission

Posted by Tom Foremski - November 18, 2013

Above, there’s a video from 2006 of Omidyar being interviewed by Esther Dyson, at a conference. It’s a good summary to the values and ethics he considers important and that will undoubtably shape the new media venture.
