Where Africa and Technology Collide!

Off to eBay Live 2006

eBay Live!I’ll be off at eBay Live! this next week in Las Vegas. It’s always interesting to see what’s going on in eCommerce with the largest player in that space.

Why am I going? Well, I’ve been working on a project that simplifies the listing process. Using our product you should be able to sell an item on eBay easier than ever before. There won’t be a need to go through multiple confusing screens anymore.

It’s one of those fun projects that you’re glad you have the chance to manage. I apologize for not being able to say more at this time about it, but I will once we push it live.

I’ll also be wandering the floor a little and hope to find other neat applications that interface with eBay. At the very least expect some strange pictures. Mixing the eBay crowd and Las Vegas is a recipe for oddities.


  1. Hi Hash! Not sure if you remember me or not. I was a couple years behind you at RVA. A group from your parents’ mission came and camped near our house with John Arensen and that is when I first met you and your sister.

    Anyway, I am not an overly technological person, but I have been trying to learn more. I signed up with your Zangu project and am anxious to see more about your ideas for the advancement of Africa’s computer world.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your blog and especially your definition of a White African. I’m ridiculously jealous that you’re headed back in July. Think of all of us as you grub on nyama choma and cold tusker. Greet RVA for me. Will you be playing any of the alumni games? Rugby at least? Best of luck to you!

  2. Hi Carrie, thanks for reading and commenting on my little web space. 🙂

    I think you’re talking about the SIL training program for new missionaries that was called “Kenya Safari”. Did you live out in Loita Hills, or somewhere else? I used to love visiting those camps on breaks from RVA.

    I do plan on running my big murasa around the rugby pitch a little bit at the RVA Centennial. I’m guessing I’ll be dead tired after 15 minutes, but not before I teach one of those young hooligans how to tackle properly! 🙂

    Also, thanks for signing up for Zangu News. Thakadu and I are working hard to get a prototype up for the Beta testers to see in the next couple of weeks. We’ll definitely keep you posted.

  3. Hi again! I am astounded at the huge world of internet technology! I can’t believe that one online business alone is larger than most nations! I have so much to learn!

    On another note, we did live in the Loita Hills. I’m sure it was the SIL group. I remember thinking it was strange to see so many wazungu around suddenly. The RVA piki safari came by our house up there too, but I think that was before you were at Rift. The guys convinced my dad to take them on a “road” that hadn’t been used in about 50 years. Long story short, they were a week late back to campus!

    Anyway, it’s fun to stay connected to other people who have lived similar lives. The internet is such a great way to keep the world relatively small. Blessings! Enjoy the rest of your conference in Vegas.

    Carrie (Brock) Lassiter ’95
