Any computers in Africa?
Austrian TV featured a programme about an electronic art exhibition in Senegal a couple of weeks ago.

South Africa indeed, where the Zeitgeist is alive.

Rift #1 (South African demoscene diskmag) documents that there at least used to be demoscene activity in South Africa.

rawhed of faktory was the only south african scener i recall meeting (we even did a demo together back in 2002), don't know what he's been up to lately, haven't talked with him in ages.

When I was a member of the Amiga group Quartz in the early 90s, they had a South African division for a while. I recall at least one of their members was a Danish expat though.

In 1992, Corial recieved a letter from a South-African scener who wanted to swap. The letter contained a quite long demo-list, including one of my productions :) (It was even a GFB demo, as far as I remember... was it Megademo 3 or so..)

There was a swapper in Cape Town, South Africa, named The Don of Hai. In the early days of Hugi my co-editor was in contact with him. I was told he had agreed to distribute Hugi in South Africa. Alas, I have never been in direct contact with him.

The Invisible Amoebas were from South Africa. Just found their demo "Black parity" too. Nice mod in it.

Gfbtm,really? I have completely forgotten that over the years, but I'm quite sure you are right. Mmm,1992, a(nother) nice scene year,even though it makes me sound old :)
