● Fluffy Links – Wednesday January 30th 2008


I’m apparently talking at UCC’s Journo Soc conference, as is Rick. The topic of the conference is “Death of a newspaper: is the traditional newspaper at risk of being replaced by the various strands of new media?” I’m getting two grand for a 20 minute talk so I’ll say whatever they want me to say.*

Lovely lashes Niall shows where his fluffy badge is at.

Why Rob blogs.

Check out this event. The OpenIsland Free Software for business event.

A virtual gallery in Second Life? Haydn and Roos are launching one on January 31st/Feb 1st. Images look fantastic. Contact Haydn on ten_cubed_events < at > depoconsulting.com if you want to attend.

Christ. On a bike. No. Really.

And even more Christ on a bikeness, a new episode of The Simpsons that was funny.

The Tipping Point not so right?

Are these really the top tech influencers. Napster founder above Bill Gates?

How do you like your Google search results, sunny side up?

Leveraging a very annoying Facebook App is good for business. I’m telling you, the money is in an app that blocks all these other apps. Charge a weekly subscription fee.

Cheeseburger in a can. Yes world, you can end now.

300 vs. The Army of Darkness

*Might, nay is, a total fucking lie.

    Superb Bruce Campbell vid. Made my morning. For more excellent Bruce action check out Burn Notice, a series he’s in on USA Network that started out last summer.

  7. cw says:

    Emmet, I must check that out.

    Big fan of Bruce and the Evil Dead, liked the vid.

    Also, there are now more parodies of 300 on the internet than there were Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae.

    That is a publicly accepted fact.

  8. Emmet Ryan says:

    Yeah but the 700 Thespians that were there never get any love.

  9. Trinity says:

    ara go on then Damien, you’ve twisted my arm! I think maybe a post and a pic is called for later then! 🙂

    two grand? well worth it I’m sure. I’ll be there paying sharp attention Damien… and as a fee-paying UCC student, I recommend you getting something on about how great Irish music blogs are, and how shit hot press is.
    Come to think of it, how many UCC bloggers are there? I’ve only ever noticed a few apart from myself. hmm.

  11. Trinity says:

    I made a fluffy post 🙂

  12. Damien says:

    @Shane I’m also a UCC student Shane. Fee-paying too. There’s a list over there to the right of UCC bloggers. Should I add you?

  13. Damien says:

    Oh hmmm, blogroll doesn’t show on individual posts.

  14. shane says:

    Damien, I didn’t know you were a student here. Yes, please do add me, you might add me to the. See you at the conference then, I look forward to it. You might add me to the Irish blogs list too, if that’d be alright 🙂

    Sounds like an interesting gig and I wouldn’t mind heading down to it. Is there a half-decent place to stay anywhere nearby?
