The new Daft Punk track called “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell Williams is mind blowingly good. It brings back the 70’s sexy funky and soulful sounds from the disco era, with the modern Daft Punk twist.

I was skeptical at first, as this whole service is dependent on Internet connectivity. In my attempt at growing the online video news services as the Multimedia Manager for Avusa Media Live (currently renamed Times Media Live) and at the South African Press Association (SAPA), I found myself being retrenched from both companies, due to the costs involved in running such a department and the slow Internet speeds in South Africa, which affects the amount of people viewing video content online. Hence my skepticism.
