Some important things you should know about this site.
We do use third party cookies on this site – most notably from Google – primarily for the purposes of advertising. The neat thing about these are that you can opt out yourself over at Google’s HQ, if you read through these pages on the DoubleClick cookie in particular. Other advertising partners (such as AdClick Africa) may also drop a cookie on your machine. We also use an analytics cookie from Google.
- Like all web servers, your IP address is logged when you visit htxt.africa in order that we can track traffic, but we don’t share these with anyone, ever.
- Email addresses collected for our daily newsletter, competition entries or discussion accounts are stored purely for that purpose and kept in a POPI compliant manner. We will never share or sell these on, except in the rare incidence of a competition in which our promo partner insists on getting access to entries. In this case, it will be made very clear in the T&Cs for that compo that this will happen.
- You should probably check this notice at regular intervals as it’s likely to be updated soon.

htxt.africa is South Africa’s newest and most exciting tech blog, covering everything from the top end of government IT investment and spending down to maker culture, hackspaces and – well, generally – fun. We cover far more of the latter than the former, in fact, and aim to make this the number one community for genuinely interesting stuff that’s coming from South Africa and the rest of the continent.
We love games, 3D printers, start-ups and innovative apps that will save the world. We believe that all across the continent, tech is making a difference to people’s lives in ways that are revolutionising living and working. htxt.africa was born of the absolute certainty that there’s a tremendous amount of stuff that’s going on, and no-one is covering this stuff with the care, attention and enthusiasm that it deserves.
