A healthy treat – New website

Posted on Sep 5, 2014 in Technology, Work | No Comments

I have been fortunate enough to help some friends out with a website here and there. One of those were for Ora-Marie. Ora is a registered dietician who moved back to South Africa after 9 years in Wales. Before her family’s long trek back to Gauteng, she started enquiring about what she would need and how she would go […]

This is exactly why I love technology – Jose Julio decided to build an opponent for his daughter to play against. She loves air hockey … so an idea was born. Built from scratch, he is making this project full accessible to anyone who is keen to copy and improve the system. He ends off by […]

Humorous Advertising

Posted on Jul 29, 2013 in Food, Observations | No Comments

It always shows when an agency puts in the extra effort in getting that right mix of humour and message and I rarely laugh out loud when I hear an advert on the radio. This morning, just that happened, I heard the latest radio advert for Checkers butchery and burst out laughing. They have taken […]

Meeting Inspiring People

I love that feeling when you walk away from a meeting feeling inspired and completely invincible. I have spent little more than a week in Johannesburg and already feel at home. The opportunities been given to me to explore and do what I love has already presented itself. I was introduced by a good friend […]

Animation made by moving atoms

Posted on May 1, 2013 in Technology | No Comments

IBM has made an animated movie by moving atoms around. This may sound like something of little or no relevance to most people, but the reason they are doing it seems even move bizarre…”because they can”.
