FF press release bollox.

Suzy fact-checks the latest copy and paste story from the Indo.

YouTube – a fantastic medium for those that sign. Brilliant use of an existing technology. Good show!

Another great Liam Daly painting, this one is of Kinsale.

Edelman are doing “hosted conversations” or Ad Widgets as Gigaom are calling them. Lets hope this will go better than that Walmart sham.

    re: ff bollox..
    > Ã?ine has been informed by the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey TD that a Steering Group comprising Department Officials and Comreg is considering options for addressing gaps in broadband coverage.

    You see that’s the problem right there in the first paragraph. If you want to know why this government is so ineffective it’s right there in black and white. Look at the language “has been informed”, “steering groups”, “considering options”. Oh yeah – they’re really going to sort things out – eircom are trembling in their boots.
    You said it best – “Bollox”.

  3. Oh, the search API is still available. What they’re doing is deprecating their SOAP endpoint. There are still other more sane methods of accessing it.
