Omid­yar is join­ing the fight against fake news. In April, his phil­an­thropic in­vest­ment firm Omid­yar Net­work an­nounced a $100 mil­lion com­mit­ment to sup­port in­ves­tiga­tive re­port­ing and fight hate speech. Omid­yar founded ebay at age 28 and stepped down as chair­man in 2015 but re­mains on the board. Omid­yar met his wife, Pam, who co­founded Omid­yar Net­work, at Tufts, where he stud­ied com­puter science and she stud­ied bi­ol­ogy.
