za tech showWe’re busy bees here at htxt.africa. As well as producing all these fine words for your delectation, we also regularly guest on the ZA Tech Show, South Africa’s leading tech podcast produced by Split Infinitive. For instance, this week, it’s me along with boss Brett Haggard and the lovely Sam Beckbessigner, talking about lots of things, but mostly Microsoft, privacy (again) and Thom Yorke. Listen above or download the podcast from the official ZA Tech Show Site. Or get it from iTunes, natch.
