The team at MarkLives wishes to extend our condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Matthew Buckland, one of the early South African journalists to embrace the world of digital news and media. There is little doubt he was a pioneer in the field of digital media and that he played an important role in the understanding and development of digital news in South Africa. We will miss his brilliant smile and mischievous sense of humour.
