The Tshwane Metro Police Choir at the Free WiFi School launch. Beautiful voices. Every police force needs law, order, and harmony. http://ift.tt/1nT19rb

Free WiFi, and some quick calculations on the gatepost. http://ift.tt/1pE5tpM
Full speed ahead: Testing the signal at the launch of the first “Free WiFi School” in Tshwane, the HL Setlalentoa High School, Ga-Rankuwa. It’s an initiative br Project iSizwe and the City Council. http://ift.tt/1n1QiVX

Trio of wire figures at the head office of Group 5 in Midrand. They have the feel of CAD drawings, but with a human scale. I always enjoy seeing art in the lobbies of big industrial corporations. http://ift.tt/1At87HH
Q: What’s better than a Solo Cappuccino from Vida? A: A free Solo Cappuccino from Vida. This is what you get for installing the new FlickPay app, the latest in a growing line of cardless, cashless transactional services. I can confirm that it works smoothly, and that the cappuccino is good. http://ift.tt/1uux1Gj

An ice-bucket of Magnum Minis at the Menell Media Exchange conference at the Forum in Bryanston. This is what I call good tea-time catering. http://ift.tt/1Aj6r3m
Smartphones, as we all know, have dumb batteries. So I bought this small and very handy Cygnett portable charger for R300 at DionWired the other day. It’s a real bargain, capable of charging a smartphone up to four times. It works with any phone or tablet with a micro-usb port, and you have to add an adaptor (the little white plug) for Apple devices. The adaptor cost me as much as the charger, but hey, that’s Apple pricing for you. http://ift.tt/1k0BdZS
View from The Forum, the very swish conference venue on the grounds of the Campus in Bryanston. This imposing mobile reminds me of what happens to a Slinky when it tumbles down the stairs the wrong way. http://ift.tt/1zbJ8Hl

Cat sniffing jasmine. I’m actually taking these - the jasmine, not the cat - to a writing workshop this morning. Smell evokes memory, and all writing, in one way or another, is memoir. http://ift.tt/WuCjT6
A missing work at the Turbine Art Fair. Unless this itself is the work. http://ift.tt/1yL3ua2
