When we (Neal and Darshan) were in high school, we each had a huge
writing assignment. We found that the most tedious part of our
paper wasn't the writing or the researching, but the bibliography
itself. We had to constantly refer to our citation guides to
figure out how to cite sources and where to put the periods, commas,
Needless to say, we thought this would be a perfect application
for the Web. After a few months of figuring out all the bibliography
rules (Neal) and coding the site (Darshan), the first version of EasyBib
launched in February 2001.
Eight years later, EasyBib is now the largest online bibliography
site on the Web, visited by millions of students per month. We've
expanded our team with some of the smartest people out there, and
are going to continue building products that make life easier, faster,
and better for our users.
