2009 has kicked off with me joining the team at Finweek magazine and Fin24.com covering the technology beat for both the publication and the website.

This week’s issue of Finweek features my first ever cover story, which I am suitably excited about. The article looks at trends in Web2.0, social networking, mobility and communications, attempting to distill the value they hold for business and explore the dynamics of integrating these in the workplace.

I get the feeling that these technologies are reaching a tipping point in South Africa as I notice an increasing amount of people exploring the world outside of Facebook and move into services like Twitter, using them not only for the social side of their lives, but also for business.

Pick up a copy of this week’s Finweek and let me know what you think.
