Friday, May 08, 2009 and the Taobao Field Guide

Taobao is China's Ebay. It's part of the Alibaba Group which includes "The world's largest online B2B marketplace."

Taobao and Alibaba are interesting to look at. In the case of all I can do is look since it's in Chinese. Non-Chinese language readers need to use Google Translator or something like the Taobao Field Guide to check out what's for sale.

You can find some sweet bo staffs for 50 renminbi or about 7 dollars U.S. (if you can figure out how to transfer money to China). You may want to check out the Bo Staffs how to select guide before buying your staff.

Otherwise it's fun to look at what people are buying and selling.
