Boom, Boom, Boom, Baby! The Education Market In Asia: WAZZALA WINS!

A few weeks ago I referenced Nick Marx's Wazzala site as a site to watch in the TechCr
unch50 and here we have it: Wazzala has made the first round cut with my buddy Nicholas Marx at the helm. Wwazzala, Bloggers, China, Da Shit, Education, Gapingvoid, Huge, Hugh MacLeod, Korea, Nicholas Marx, Now it's time to play, TechCruch, Techcrunch50, Technorati, Vietnam, Weirdos, What's Next Geeks, WTF, education, test, english, vietnam, techcrunch-50, nicholas marxazzala is an idea that helps Asian students prepare for English college entrance exams and if you have any understanding of the 30 billion (that's a "B") dollar worldwide education market, you understand how bright, and right, this idea is. Here's the letter they sent to him, informing him of Wazzala's forward motion: Way cool.

"So I got this email inviting me to an interview from the TechCrunch50 conference. Even if I don't make it, I know now my idea has legs." = Nick
