Dr. Somadoda Fikeni on South African Exceptionalism

Independent political analyst Dr. Somadoda Fikeni discusses the notion of South African Exceptionalism, popularised by the Apartheid government but still in use in the country today.

Fakhamzadeh knows how to throw together a pretty effective combination of web services. He has designed a method to geotag Flickr photos (2006) before Flickr itself was doing it, brought photo marathons to Africa (2007) and won the Highway Africa New Media Award (2007) with Ismail Farouk for sowetouprisings.com.

Added to this, Fakhamzadeh created what was probably the first mobile phone based city tour (2004), as well as one of the first (if not the first) QR-code assisted smartphone-based city tours (2009). His latest software projects are Dérive which gets you pleasantly lost in your city and Sliders (for Flickr), a free digital photo frame.
