Named as 1 of 300 Young South African’s you should take to lunch

Mail & Guardian ran a feature on 300 young South African’s you should take to lunch. There were a number of categories from Arts & Culture to Sports and I was named in the Technology section.

From the article:

Jason Bagley, web entrepreneur

Jason Bagley met his former business partner on Twitter. This may sound odd but it is totally in character for this Generation Y entrepreneur, who professes a dislike of “old-school corporates”.
Bagley has little formal education and learned most of his developers’ skills on the job.
“I didn’t want to wait three to four years studying before I could start working,” he says. So far, it’s been a good strategy. He’s worked for Trustco Goup International, Travelogic and Younique.
Earlier this year, Bagley’s popular, but unofficial My Coke Fest blog, which featured advertising and made use of Coke trademarks, came under fire from Coke. Under threat of legal action, Bagley sanitised and relocated the blog, but retained a loyal community base. He says the incident shows a lack of understanding about how social media works.
Bagley recently set up his own media company, Beanbag Media, and also consults to World Wide Creative. He runs the Incredible Connection blog. — Faranaaz Parker
