Why do South Africans vote the way they do? [Part 2]

The panelists continue in answering Democracy Works Chairperson William Gumede’s question of why South Africans vote in particular and perhaps predictable ways in 2014.


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.
