Fluffy Links – Tuesday September 2nd 2008

Going to PodCamp? Do.

My own take on this new Google Chrome Browser. I think the browser wars won’t happen. This is all about building an OS for the Web.

The latest Post the Roast is out.

K8 the Gr8 won August’s Blog Post of the Month. O2 are sending her a phone too. Fair play to O2 too for keeping up with the sponsorship despite a load of us bloggers giving them crap for their iPhone issues. Not every company would do that.

Eamon climbed Mont Blanc. For the laugh like. Read all about it.

Ryanair is one of the best PR/Marketing agencies in the world. Another example. I do wonder is it Ryanair themselves leak these? People keep getting told how they will try every trick in the book to cut costs. We get a new one every so often. Remember the mobile phone charging ban? Do you honestly think it was real?

Fan in fanatic. Look at the massive energy and gravity around the Dr. Horrible universe. Whedon has whacky fans.

Playlist from William Gibson. iTunes buy!

Jeremiah on How to get noticed. Brand wise.

Remember that cool enough song that was made for 500 quid and had 250k views on Youtube? Know how many mp3s he sold as a result? 100 Here’s Rhodri Marsden’s take on how hard it is for bands/musicians these days.
Here’s the vid again:

Are there any Seanachai events in Ireland anymore? I’ve love to go to a few of them and see how they work. I’d love if Eddie Lenihan’s TV shows were put online by RTE or put on DVD. You can listen to a tale from Eddie here.

    There’s a Story Telling Carnival in Courtmacsherry this weekend. Some details at http://www.ireland-guide.com/this_months_events/courtmacsherry_storytelling_carnival.6457.html
    As close to a Seanachai as I can think of right now!

    Fair play to K8 and fair play to O2. They’ve gotten a lot wrong, but it’s good to see them continuing to support Irish blogging. They have clawed back much respect.

    Can’t wait to try out Chrome, you’re dead right with your take on it. Soon we’ll have the Google OS running light on portable devices, let the OS wars resume! Pitty about android though.
