HI, I'm Bill. Bonanza is the web site that I've spent the last five years building.
Why? At first, I built it because I took offense that there was so much busywork involved in selling stuff online. There needed to be a marketplace that was "dumb simple" to use. We're constantly working toward that vision.
But we have an even more ambitious goal. Though Bonanza has rapidly grown to more than one million different people who visit every month, we've become known for having a community so friendly that it feels like you're spending time with a small group of your most upbeat friends. This community has helped to define our "real" vision: to become the most enjoyable social shopping experience for all those looking to buy and sell "everything but the ordinary."
Bonanza members often refer to themselves as "extended family," and they are always happy to welcome a new face into the club (go say "Hi I'm new and I like Bonanza" in the "Welcome to Bonanza" forum if you'd like to test that theory).
As for me... In the analog world, my interests include (bubble baths and long walks on the beach and) basketball, microbrews, nachos (I'm the proud owner of http://www.ultimatenacho.com), programming (C++ in a past life, Ruby on Rails these days), listening to music, and barbecuing.
