I just got back from a Wild West-themed party hosted by Bizcommunity at Party House in Northgate. The event was held to thank Bizcommunity’s clients and prospective clients for their business and interest. I had a couple really interesting discussions about satellite TV in Africa and the upcoming CNBC Africa launch on 1 June (which is expected to really shake up local and African business news on terrestrial and satellite TV) and new media adoption in South African businesses (there certainly seems to be quite a bit of enthusiasm for new media elements like blogs and what is needed is more analysis of what is appropriate for a given business).
The event was co-ordinated by Bizcommunity’s National Ad Sales Executive who dressed up for the evening in a kind of Wild West showgirl outfit (I am dredging the memory of what Wild West showgirls wore on old movies up from the recesses of my memory so I could be wrong about the style of the dress). I would like to thank Simone Puterman for inviting us to the party.
I have a few more photos on Flickr. Please excuse the poor image quality – my aging Nokia 6630 doesn’t cope very well with low light situations.
