And you, as our most valued and revered community, are on the VIP guest list of our virtual festivities. We're having a Facebook party
and a Whizz Bang tribute page
. We invite you to post up your own biz stories, memories or wishes in any official language of your choice. We'd love to reward you with party packs and are giving away 50 cases of First Sighting wines
and a UCT Marketing course
this week, 22-26 August.Biz Bang Theory
We've also been hard at work refining the theory of how Bizcommunity has evolved from 2001 to the present day. This research has come to be known as the Biz Bang Theory. Some of the factors that may have caused the Bang are thought to have been the right chemistry and the many dedicated and talented associates who have contributed their energy and knowledge over the decade. Feel free to contribute your theory of biz's expanding universe on our Facebook birthday page
And don't feel limited by mere words - if you feel inspired to build a model, bake, knit, dance, sing or send us a card, we'll make sure you earn lots of social media miles and prizes for your efforts.
Our celebrations are also in honour of all the Biz "First Ladies" (and Gentlemen), those who were the first to subscribe
to our 2001 newsletters and who are still with us today. Thanks for liking and sharing us before there were buttons for that and for paving the way for our 400 000-strong community of dynamic, networked African entrepreneurs - we owe you!Official hashtag
Oh, and if you feel a tweet coming on, the official Biz birthday hashtag is #happybiz10
. You'll also be considered for prizes!
