Why we no longer trust our government

Imagine going through the days of your life knowing that a pair of eyes are watching your every move, daring you to, and daring you not to. Even if you were to attempt to escape its gaze, the mere shadow of it still manages to burn to the core of your existence?

Our kids will be digital

With all of the social networking sites (SNS) today, a lot of what we do is transferred from analogue to digital. I worry for my children; I want them to experience a bit of analogue before being sent into the unforgiving culture of digital.

Social networking sites (SNS) have increased in numbers by large amounts over the past few years. We now have Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Bebo, MySpace, Friendster, Orkut, Netlog, Buzznet, Blogster and that doesn’t even cover the tip of the iceberg. This doesn’t even include networking sites created for more local purposes such as Rhodes University’s RUconnected or  Ratchat created by anonymous Rhodes students.

Growing social media, growing disconnect?

I must say I was slightly apprehensive about typing up this post. On one hand I love social media - the interconnectedness, ease of sharing, and down-time; but on the other I hate that this medium can at times be more isolating than uniting.

female politicians #winning

A lot more female politicians are holding their own. They are now running some of the ‘male-dominated’ ministries such as home, defence and foreign affairs. Did you know that South Africa’s central bank governor is a woman?
