Simon de Haast spoke about:


Dominic Gruijters spoke about:

  • The necessity of us web developers waking up, smelling the roses, and realising that the vast majority of people don't have computers, never mind broadband access. What they do have is cellphones. Cellphones can be used as educational and business tools, however, very little of the processing & communications power of cellphones are actually being tapped into. (Dominic, do you have a post somewhere outlining your brilliant talk?)


Nikki Friedman spoke about:


I can't remember all of what was being said... If you were there and remember some details, please fill 'em in!









We're having another Stormhoek Geek Dinner in Cape Town.


The idea behind this one is that half of Joburg comes to Cape Town in December anyway so it'll be a great opportunity for us all to connect.



To do list:

1. Choose a date

2. Book a venue

3. Come up with a theme

4. Invite speakers and guests


1. Date:

Friday 22 December 2006

Time: anytime from 6ish if you want leisurely sundowners - but officially all the action starts at 7pm


okay.. for all who get the notifications (clever you!) our date is set: Friday 22nd .. Dave & Max will be posting tomorrow morning . So all you guys will have the heads.up 1st!


2. Suggested Venues:


We have found a delightful little spot in Hout Bay that would love to host us... Redemption Cafe

It's a great little sundowners spot so we can have some drinks and chat before we eat and talk.

__Directions__: It's easy to find:

Redemption is in Mainstream Centre (turn off Princess Street) which you'll find by heading all the way toward the ocean if you're taking the coastal route; or at the 2nd circle of Main Road (M6) if you've come through the forest or Constantia.

Turn into Mainstream and park on the left ..and there you are.. and there we'll be :-)

If lost buzz the restaurant on 021 790 0305 or 084.4999.890 pop in yr phone now if you require a GPS to navigate to the bathroom


For the spacially-orientated, the map >>


or go to google earth - there's a pushpin on the location (lat=-34.0423719149, lon=18.3568259627) & you can work back from there or pop it on yr GPS if you are thus endowed!


3. Theme:


What's HOT. Come share your discoveries of the hottest tech toys tools & tweaks of 2006



4. Speakers:


we have a lekker lineup of speakers who'll give us their highlights in podcasting, the impending mobile madness, marketing online and turning your blog into a serious business, taking back telecomms etc. Gonna be some goodies %-)


Now all we're missing is you >> Register now
