Tomorrow I am going to Orange Farm township in Soweto to deliver & install some equipment at an Internet Cafe! Group of amazing South African geeks/entrepreneurs have been contributing computers (Dial-a-Nerd), wireless backhaul (Internet Solutions), Anti-Virus (ESET Southern Africa) and asked me if Skyrove could provide a billing system (Currently the owner, Lennox, has to write down the times people start & stop using the computers and then charge them afterwards)??
I was privileged to have breakfast with Raymond Ackerman and a small
group of Cape Town entrepreneurs last weekend.
in part because they said he was “too emotional”) – Don???t squash ideas – See people (always) – Do everything ??? get involved/show interest in everything – Always look for opportunities – ???LISTEN??? ??? and shake hands with everyone (I see RA is very
good at remembering names) – Keep an open mind – Foundation = 4 legs of the table: 1) Good admin , 2) great
service, 3) Sales/promo/social responsibility (???give back???), 4) People
(promote from within, pay well, recognize etc) – Main aim of a business is not to make money but to make the
???customer sovereign??? – Pick n Pay expects a big fight with Walmart and have a plan
mapped out for the coming years – Prediction ??? tough times for 3 or 4 months then a good 2012 – Be positive (intelligently) and read (like Mandela did for 27
years) – spoke about Viktor Frankl???s stores on how Holocaust survivors
had almst irrational hope – Constitution must be defended ??? ???free enterprise is
essential??? + ???government can???t run business??? – ???Head in the sky with feet on the ground??? – Always innovate – Be positive (repeat)
… the “good people” of the internet who believe in the fundamental rights of individuals to be free, have free speech, fight hypocrisy and stand behind logic, technology and science over religion, political structure and tradition. These are the people who build and support things like Wikileaks, Anonymous, Linux and Wikipedia. They think that people can, and should, govern themselves. They are against external forms of control such as DRM, laws that are bought and sold by lobbyists, and religions like Scientology.
