When did Web AddiCT begin?

In 1999, Rafiq Phillips aka Web AddiCT, taught himself how to publish his own .com site with a little help from his IRC friends and has been involved in digital ever since. From being a finalist in the National Innovation Competition (South Africa) in 2005, being awarded the Top ICT Youth Innovator in Africa a few years later.

Web AddiCT is founded as a resource to journal the technology and ideas that he believes has the potential to be used as a tool to affect positive change and solve problems in life or business. When said businesses he was working for, denied the implementation of those ideas and tools, he’d publish them here instead. Since then over 3 million of you have spent an average of 123 seconds each reading the ideas he’s shared.

Web AddiCT was also selected as one of the first ๐Ÿ’ฏ in The TED Fellows program, a global network of 453 trailblazers bringing positive change to every corner of the planet. In 2008 he introduced South Africa to Twitter on the prime time TV Show Carte Blanche. Web AddiCT was named by Men’s Health as 1 of the โ€œ6 Men Under 35 Who Will Shape The Next Decade.โ€ With a track record spanning 13 years, of not only publishing ideas & participating in campaigns; but living & working with the tools & technology that will impact our everyday lives & help trend tomorrow, today. How can his ideas help you?
