You may recall a while back I did a post asking for a couple of pennies to help me get to the amazing Tech4Africa conference being held in Jozi next week. Well the response to the post was incredible, and I got a whole stack of mails from people offering ways & means to get me there. I got sponsored R500 from 2 companies in Joburg, and also got a couple of PayPal donations.A big big thanks to EVERYONE who donated. It is much much appreciated.
But, the post was picked up by the Tech4Africa conference organisers, and soon I was emailing Gareth Knight, the clever man behind the whole show. After a couple of emails back and forth, I offered to write a couple of blog posts on the Tech4Africa blog telling people what the conference was all about, while also assisting with general social media stuffs, and become a T4A “ambassador”. Needless to say, I was in :) In exchange, the guys would offer me a discounted ticket, and help make my Tech4Africa dream become a reality.
So, I’m pleased to say, that it has all worked out just the way I wanted, and this time next week, I will be boarding my flight to Jozi. If you going to be at Tech4Africa, please come and say howzit. I know I can.not wait :)
