    A truly inspirational and infectious personality. Antonie was a pioneer in the pay-tv and internet industries in South Africa. His legacy will never be forgotten. I can still recall my first staff meeting with him when MWEB was started. His motto was: "To boldly go where nobody has gone before!" Condolences to his family - this person has made his mark!
