  • Bzzster growing up – gets an “About Us” page

    A couple of days ago, David and I decided that it was time to put up an about us page for Bzzster.

    Though not everyone wants to know more about us, and it is probably the last page that most people will visit, we don’t want to disappoint those who do want to know more about the people, idea and values behind Bzzster and Shareaholic.
