Etv Tech Report Comes To RLABS

On Saturday Etv Tech Report (Etv) visited RLABS to do a story and some filming on what we are doing and how we are using Social Media to empower our communities. They arrived to at RLABS round about 1.30pm and started almost immediately with the interviews and gathering information as to how RLABS came into existence.

They did an interview with Marlon Parker the founder member of RLABS and then later requested to interview some of the staff and management team. They selected Craig Ross (Innovations Manager at RLABS) and Monique Ross (She’s The Geek, his wife) to tell them more about their stories and how RLABS had helped them in their recovery.

Craig and Monique both come out of a lifestyle of gangsterism and drugs and have amazing testimonies. Most important of all they are using what they have learnt to help others that have been in the same boat they (on drugs) have been. Look out for Etv’s new show and the story of RLABS.  Etv will be back at RLABS on Saturday to do a story of Marlon Parker’s new initiative: JamiiX.

Well done to all the staff of RLABS and the great work they are doing in and for the community.

Jamiix Social Exchange

Marlon Parker, the Ceo of Jamiix and his team has been working long hours to make the deadline for the launch of their company Jamiix, a brand new social-media aggregator that was developed on Cape Town’s notoriously under-resourced and impoverished Cape Flats is launching internationally with grand ambitions to become an integral part of the Web 2.0 landscape.

I am excited that something so new and fresh is being birthed out of the Cape Flats. The Cape Flats is well known for all the negative things and is also known as the capital of the most horrendous crimes. I know that this concept will be well received across the globe.

Well done Marlon Parker and his team for their hard work and dedication. Keep it up guys!!!
