nogozones project

recommended listening

some links picked up on research surfs here and there, enjoyed, and
listed here in no particular order:

recent podcasts from the inner city of Johannesburg
sounds like: the daily dance around no-go-zones in Joburg’s inner city
http://ismailfarouk.com/audio/ you may also like to visit Ismail Farouk’s awardwinning website: Soweto Uprisings:
http://sowetouprisings.com/site/
Ismail is collaborating with Babak Fakhamzadeh, a ‘traveling web guru currently living in Johannesburg’.
The websites, created by Babak, are also an interesting example of linking public-access sites, a ‘mashup’ as Ismail and Babak say of several different online services, including Flickr, Blogger, Google Maps and del.icio.us.
