College classifieds

The story of how Walamu.com- The World's Largest College Classifieds Network came into existence, is really interesting.

Unlike some people who are lucky enough to have rich parents or Governments sponsoring their studies, many others have to fund themselves by working or fighting for scholarships.

This blog post here that tells the story of how a homeless student living at the University library had a brilliant idea to create a site which would enable students to save on textbook. This site will allows students to buy and sell books with others on their campus. The major advantage is that the shipping/ delivery costs are not involved.

Reading the post actually reminds me of my own university undergraduate days when I would spend hours in the library photocopying and making my own notes because I couldn't afford to buy books. Wish we had such a system then.
