TWR Podcast: 2018 tech, crypto prospects and 2017 porn stats

Welcome back to The Weekly Roundup, where the Burn Media staff talk the latest in tech and startup news!

This week, Hadlee Simons hosts Andy Walker and Stephen Timm.

We kick off with Ventureburn, and the gang talks South Africans in the tech startup ecosystem you should follow in 2018. And if you think you can avoid cryptocurrency this year, think again; Stephen tells us what to expect from the ongoing boom.

Second on the agenda is the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), showcasing some of what 2018 is bringing in the world of tech. From loads of new laptops to US$30 000 projectors and virtual assistants in every gadget you can imagine — CES 2018 has it all.

Finally, Andy talks the important stuff — namely, what South Africans were watching on Pornhub in 2017. The country was 19th in terms of site traffic last year, searching for the likes of “black south african” and “cheerleader”. But more importantly —¬†SA lasted the second-longest, placing just behind the Phillipines for the highest average time spent on Pornhub.
