Nic Haralambous

Project manager, social media, Vodacom

From the get go, it's obvious that Nic Haralambous is deeply in love with multimedia. The 24-year old attributes his preference for online over print media to his view of theinternet as the more "democratic communication� medium. Proactive is probably the best word to describe him. "Don't bitch and moan, give solutions,� he says. It appears to be his mantra. After hearing a speech by Bob Geldof on television in 2005, he booked a ticket to Edinburgh for the next day, where he rocked up with his film camera to photograph the G8 summit and he was beaten by riot police. Haralambous has written and shot for the Sunday Times, designed websites for Financial Mail and managed blogspots for the Mail & Guardian. He also started up the website SA Rocks and recently moved from general manager of the social media website, Zoopy, to Vodacom.� Ilham Rawoot
