Rice Prices - Pressure on the Consumer Grows
Friday, 25 April 2008

Rice prices and other grain-based staples should be set to go through the roof judging by the Key Commodities Index which shows an incredible spike in the Wheat Spot.

All this makes me wonder if we could see a food shortage in South Africa or not. Most of our population have Maize products such as Maize Meal as a staple. Such products are subsidized by the state, but if there is a shortage, I wonder what effect it will have on millions of poorer South Africans.

South African Land Exodus
Thursday, 24 April 2008

Good old Estate Agents FOR SALE signs are starting to take on a new meaning as more and more boards appear in our suburbs.

How many are because people just cannot afford the bond and how many because people are just needing to move and how many because the move is to far away shores? Taking the word on the street it looks like the word SALE in the FOR SALE sign may become an acronym for South African Land Exodus.

Seems like everyone I meet who is selling these days is making for the exit. I see people debating why and giving all sorts of reasons and of course the bold black and white issue which we just can't seem to get rid of in South Africa. I don't really care why people are leaving, each to his own. I know that I am staying.

Bookmark Your Property Website
Wednesday, 23 April 2008

Today I launched another piece of South African Internet Real Estate. It's a niche social bookmarking website focused property.

The website is simply called Property Bookmarks and aims to give people a place where they can organize and share their bookmarks to websites that are in some way related to property.

As many know, I run the Property Investor Network website where there is a free forum and thousands of people interested in property chatting about all types of things property related. The idea or need for the Property Bookmarks website has been born out of the Property Investor Network website.

Boycott Virgin Media before South African ISPs Get the Same Idea
Saturday, 19 April 2008

This is serious and I urge everyone who is anyone to take a look and take a stand before any South African ISP's try to follow what Virgin Media is doing.

The Internet is and always must remain the great leveler. On the internet their has always been a state called, net-neutrality ,  Simply put, Virgin Media wants to infringe on this freedom by making people running sites with the money to pay get faster bandwidth than all of those who cannot pay. The new CEO of Virgin Media, Neil Berkett, has openly stated in an interview that they think net neutrality is "a load of bollocks" and claimed they're already doing deals to deliver some people's content faster than others. They would then put websites and services that don't pay Virgin in the "slow lane", meaning those sites would load slowly and cause most users to give up using them, feeling forced to use whatever Virgin wants to push through their network.

We must act together to stop this as it will be devastating to the internet if we allow it to happens.

People want everything for nothing
Sunday, 13 April 2008

People never cease to amaze me. I run a property listing website called Property Axis . On this site I let people, estate agents or private sellers, list their properties for free. Yes, not a cent is charged. For this low price I give them 12 photo's and 1000 impressions of their property advert. The site gives all the usual things, ability to contact seller directly, ability for seller to put up their own photo and, if they are an estate agent, their corporate logo.
