Bite size updates on the real important stuff related to Tech, Trends, Business and the Planet.


Golden Arrow bus services in Cape Town now have two fully electric busses. Well done!


Cape Town will be participating in the Formula E Tournament (ABB FIA Formula E World Championship) on the 26 February 2022. Formula E is the only sport certified as net-zero carbon since its beginning.


Durban has taken its first step to ‘go off the grid’. It recently publicised interest in a supply of 400 megawatts of off grid power.

A character of a Smart City will always be its desire to be independent or less reliant on national or global support.


If you missed Richard Branson space flight (Virgin Galactic spaceflight), here is the catch up video I recommend. Fast forward about 25 minutes to cut the intro. Richard loved his mom and has inspired many people. One of my life goals is to visit ‘Space’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oi2XLij4NbI


The African wild dog, or African painted dog, is one of the world's most endangered mammals. There are only 7000 remaining in Africa. Most have been lost due to human-wildlife conflict.


Some nuggets on VR & AR.

https://sandboxvr.com is an example of international innovation in the field, but what do we have in South Africa?

We do have a few options, unfortunately less than I hoped for: the first one I found called Virtualrealms in Cape Town appears to have shut down. (Based on some Google results: the company appears to have been a casualty of lock down regulations.

It bugs me so much when I hear a business has closed down because of C0v^d. The correct reason is actually because of government imposed regulations. Anyway, I regress. Here is a list of a few very awsum South African businesses well worth checking out.
