What is a bosberaad?
It's a meeting that was first started by Malgat. The idea was that we always ride together and talk kark on the forum, but seldom see each others faces and get to know the person.
There has now been three of these get - togethers. It is just a chance to show your face, so others will know who is giving them shit.
This one will be special, it will be the first one held after Malgat passed away.
Oh ja, it is a one - night stand, and what happens at Bosberaad stays at Bosberaad.
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

The internet, on the other hand, is a totally different type of medium where the flow of information is vertical as well as horisontal. Many scholars have described this phenomenon as the "democratisation of opinion".
...
The digital age has changed all that irrevocably.

So true, Jacko. Latest media stats (for developed countries) show the average adult's media consumption figures of:
Outdoor & other - 2%
Mobile (including digital content) - 6%
Print (newspapers, magazines etc) - 9%
Radio - 16%
TV - 32%
and... Internet - 35%   (most teens in Europe spend over 6 hours per day on the internet)

...For the first time in over 50 years, another medium has surpassed the TV giant. Already there are producers (and product owners) making audio & visual movies just for the internet. 

IMHO... Wildogs is part of this new age. Unlike publications still focused on their old, 'one dimensional' medium.  :mwink:
The power of media has been taken back, by the people. It's traveled from word-of-mouth, to word-of-mouse.  ;D

well said jacko and wayneh - and dare i say, i feel a bit like thomas paine :biggrin:

wrt SF - i think we must also remember that unlike many of the BikeSA following, we are not a club, therefore WDs is not 'responsible' for members comments.  We are firstly individuals which 'meet' in the WD virtual world?  But his letter was not aimed at WDs in general, actually quite flattering towards us.  Storm in a tea-cup - between SF and Pom/BM >:D

As for bosberaad - may I be so forward to suggest the night of the Friday 15 May?  DB9 - normal procedure?

I agree! I read things I agree with and dislike intensely on WD forum a well as in magazines and various froms of media. Luckily I have a brain to act as filter for what is acceptable to me and not. I am a Sovereign Individual. Convince me if you can! >:D :pot: ;)

Iemand het ook gese hulle het in BIKE  SA Mag gesien wat die Tenere se prys is.....

Yes, dit was ek, en as ek dit nie gesien het nie sou ek nou nog nie geweet het wat die ST gekos het nie, moet ook se ek het die briefie van oom Simon gemis  :'(  Tot nou toe  :biggrin:

I went to buy the mag at CNA and couldn't find it. Asked one of the people working there and they took it off the shelf. I missed it because I thought it was a scooter pamflet.

First I read the message from Simon, amazed that he took the comments so personally. I understand him wanting to set the record straight though, as the stories about the rally that were being posted here were not very factual.

I do believe that as we get older we find it more and more difficult to accept critique. SF is no exception and this places his irritation in perspective. I do however believe that the name calling of SF and DF was uncalled for and not in keeping with the tone that we wish to set on the forum. I am happy to see that BM appologised for the name calling and am hoping that the others will do the same. You are entitled to your opinion but resorting to insults destroys your credibility and reflects badly on the other forum members as well.

I then tried to read the rest of the mag, some good stories, but difficult to read as they are spread over multiple pages with an incredible number of advetisements in between. If you are interested in the ads you have to page back to the beginning of the story to then look at the ads. The layout does not make sense, its not like TV where you place the ads in a story to ensure people see them, in this mag you follow the story and therefore miss the ads.

That is my biggest gripe against the mag and was booed out of the BikeSA forum for saying that....

I have stopped counting the times that a article would say "Continued on page 33" just to get there and the rest of the article disappear on you. If Simon is the Editor (don't know) he needs to take the blame. If he is not the editor then get another one.

It is like nobody checks the thing before it gets printed.

Ag Sighmoan,

Hier, kry vir jou 'n virtual p%^sklap!
And sommer pass a few more onto your macho blue light MacMofia guards.
Don't fuck with the virtual chain gang. You’ll lose ‘cause they hit harder that you’ll understand.
As Jaco says,  Joe Public now has a digital voice, a moerse platform, is  greased with words and knows how to use them.
Ons is ook nie bang nie, want jy kan ons nie vang nie
I for one used to buy that publication but stopped a few years ago, cause it's simply kak.
Due to not having any real interest in Moto GP etc. and there being no other bike programs on the box I sometimes try to watch their program.
Maar slaat my dood met ‘n Huisgenoot dis sloppy gedoen.
They don't share any usable intelligent info about the products they feature. So now I've stopped watching.
For all the above reasons I have never and most definitely won't go to rallies. Not my scene. Was never into random vomit comets and egocentric agro wannabe Hardly Dangerous riders.
Following this thread and reading the scanned letter from Bark-but-no-BaaitSA has just confirmed my suspicions about that mag and what the people who produce it stand for.
Simon, kry vir jou ‘n greasy dubbel dik wikkel nool.
Ja ek tart jou en wat gaan jy daaraan doen?
