"This is a great idea. Thought of something similar, but slightly different. Main problem I sat with was exactly as George pointed out below. With that said, I really do hope that it does succeed and you will grow from strength to strength :)"

See the Western Cape broadband rollout explainer video

Premier Helen Zille started off her speech last night at the annual Silicon Cape event with this brilliant explainer video. Unfortunately we can't host it here on the site, ironically - due to broadband limitations - but head on over to youtube to watch it. 

Although this video paints a bleak picture, step one is creating awareness so we know what the situation is and can formulate actions to change this. Thank you to the…

Thank you Mark, I wanted to join the CONNCT event on Thursday. Do I just have to follow the G+ group to attend?

hi mark, lekker en jy?

sien jou more aand, looking forward.

Hey Mark, the event went very well thanks.

In order to promote to the Silicon Cape community we just used the events channel which seemed to be fairly well received. Within the university, we focused on support from academics and used their influence to promote the event through communication channels that they have got with students. And then also Facebook and Twitter to build a general hype.

I hope that this answers your question!
