Interview: Jeff Skoll, former eBay president and founder of Participant Media and Skoll Foundation

When Jeff Skoll was a high school student in Canada, a teacher asked the class to write down what they wanted to appear on their tombstones after they died.

"What I came up with as a kid was to make a difference in the big issues in the world," eBay’s first president and second full-time employee recalled this week. "At the time, I thought I would do that as a writer. I also wanted to have a good family life."

A couple of years ago, he revisited that exercise and added a line: "Have fun too."
