Since it’s almost Social Media Week here in Johannesburg, Adam sat down with Sherry Bitting from the organisation behind the event to talk a bit about the what Social Media Week is, who it’s aimed at and what attendees can hope to get from it.

They also discuss social media in general and how it’s changing along with some of the specific challenges faced by South Africa when it comes to making the most of the possibilities created by social media platforms.

Social Media Week takes place in Johannesburg from the 22nd to the 26th of September, with the theme of “The Future of Now: Always on, Always Connected” as the focus point for talks, Master Classes and other highly informative activities for attendees to soak up.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
