The latest interview on Newsroom.ie is with Fergal O’Byrne from the IIA. I’m hoping to have interviews from Ina O’Murchu and Alex French online soon too. I’m also lining up a few more people who I’ll send e-mail interviews to over Christmas. I’m hoping to get a few of the local Cork companies that Donagh Kiernan mentioned in his interview. If anyone wants to suggest either Irish tech companies to interview then let me know.
I think it’s great that there are more interviews occuring, whether it be blogger interviews via the Disillusioned Lefties, international tech wizards interviews on PodLeaders or my own humble interviews with those involved in helping along Irish Business. I would think there’s a lot more space in the interviewing and conversations arena for another dozen or so niches.
To me, Irish people have a talent for talking and getting people talking and with the Internet linking us all up, we should as a people capitalise on this natural talent. Hell, for a few hundred years in the middle ages we were the light in the darkness and educated the rest of the world. Isn’t every interview and every conversation just one form of education?
Speaking of interviews, Robert Scoble has his own thoughts on them:
David Newberger is onto something. His blog has gotten much more interesting since heâ€™s started doing interviews. has Mike Rundle CDO of the 9Rules Network; Doc Searls; me; VC Jeff Clavier; and recently had Jennifer DeGraffenreid on Native American Media. He doesnâ€™t do podcasts or vlogs or anything like that. Just emails 10 questions and asks for answers.
