Summary Profile

Technology, telecoms and the internet have become as central to our lives as our cars have to transport. But this high-tech world is complex and confusing, and rapidly changing. There have been more changes in the last 10 years than perhaps the last hundred, and there are more coming. New communication methods and social media (not just Facebook and Twitter) are changing the way people communicate and how consumers interact with brands. Toby Shapshak has been covering tech, telecoms and the internet for over a decade and explaining these changes in a range of media (from the Mail & Guardian, Business Day, Sunday Times, The Times, GQ, Best Life, CNBC, Talk Radio 702 and Cape Talk). He is now editor of Stuff magazine, South Africa’s largest technology magazine, a columnist for The Times newspaper and a contributing editor to Business Day's Wanted magazine. A previous winner of ICT Journalist of the Year, in 2009 he was named in GQ's top 30 men in media and the Mail & Guardian's 300 influential young South Africans. GQ said he "has become the most high-profile technology journalist in the country" while the M&G wrote: "Toby Shapshak is all things tech... he reigns supreme as the major talking head for everything and anything tech
