Last week I sat down with a good friend doing fantastic work in the SME space in South Africa, Marnus Broodryk. Marnus convinced me to join him on his SME.Africa podcast. 4 years since our acquisition I enjoyed reminiscing over our journey and the learnings, however distant and fuzzy some parts feel. We also spoke […]
Last week we got featured on Apple’s official @instagram account! “We” actually referring to my son – I just snapped the photo. He choreographed it. It’s kind of mind bending to quantify a feature like this. The world’s largest company featuring a photo I took. On a social account they only post one photo a […]
A howling south easter made this year’s 109km cycle tour a rather challenging one. It was however a much more enjoyable one having done a little more training than for previous attempts. Less focus on cramping muscles, and more on the beautiful peninsula views. A road bike, and cleats were also game changing additions…
What a month August was. Driving Audi R8 spyders around the South Tyrol region. An Audi experience tour that included German autobahn, the Italian Dolomites and some of the most beautiful Austrian Alps mountain passes. A trip I shall never forget, and roads I hope to return to… in a more family friendly wagon.
On July 9th 2008 we launched @WooThemes. With the benefit of youthful business naivety, the serendipity of meeting co-founders online, the scale of open source and through the power of sequence & hard graft we found our 10 year “overnight” success! Happy Birthday @WooCommerce 💌 via Twitter
I 😍 that he shares my passion for photography. I 😨 that he is holding my @leica_camera. I 🤯 that this is an auto-edit film, created by the @djiglobal app! Taken by my talented six year old ↓
With Gutenberg being touted as the future of WordPress it’s time to give it a thorough test drive on my personal blog. For years I’ve used this space as a test bed for personal theme developments and woonderful plugin explorations. A test bed that’s laid dormant for a while… First up is installing a new […]
It feels like it’s been a significant year, worthy of etching in this sparsely populated digital memory bank. A challenging personal year embarking on re-invention, with little daily structure or operational responsibilities. A year sans a professional title and many coffee meetings explaining why… A year of much envy and privilege. A year of many […]
The Selati Game Reserve is a 27 000 ha private reserve we’re fortunate to regularly visit. This lush green trip was with some good friends in late March. P.S. Loved discovering a serendipitous moment shared between an elephant and a butterfly in my footage!
Last week we celebrated the life of my grandpa on the farm where he was born and died 93 years later. Seeing the farm from high above highlights the changing landscape of Nelspruit. It’s amazing to see how the farm has shaped the city’s growth. Being on the farm brought back wonderful childhood memories of […]
