My name is Nafisa Akabor and I’m a freelance technology journalist based in Johannesburg. Wired to the Web is my tech blog that covers mobile, gadgets, apps, how-tos, travel and cars.

I have been covering consumer and business tech since 2007 after my runner-up award as a Citizen Journalist at the Telkom ICT Awards 2006.

My work appears in newspapers, magazines, online, radio, TV and podcasts. I’ve been published on TechCentral, Financial Mail, Quartz, Mail & Guardian, City Press, Forbes Africa, Forbes Woman Africa, Sawubona, TFG Tech, VISI Magazine, Brainstorm, Digital Life and ITWeb; and lifestyle titles (Your Family, Marie Claire, Women’s Health, Destiny, Edgars Club mag, On-Route travel mag).

I’ve done corporate blogging for brands such as Nokia, Microsoft, Samsung, BCX, iFix, Showmax, Nashua, Vodacom, Barclays, Absa, Mercedes-Benz and Telkom.

I currently contribute tech in a freelance capacity for various titles on an on-going basis, such as the Financial Mail, City Press, Forbes Africa, TechCentral, VISI and I also write for niche custom publications and do corporate blogging.

I’m one of the judges for the Consumer Awards, and previously judged the SA leg of the global TADHACK hackathon; MTN Business App of the Year; the GirlCode Hackathon, and Entelect’s in-house Tech Accelerator initiative.
