Good to know

Academia.edu was founded by Richard Price, who raised $600,000 from a variety of sources.

The domain name was registered in 1999, prior to the regulations that required .edu domain names represent an accredited institution of higher education.

In spite of this early registration, the site itself was not launched until 2008.
