Fluffy Links – Wednesday 22nd October 2008

Very interesting post from Richard Hearne about the Enterprise Ireland eBusiness mailing list and the enforced censorship on it after he gave his opinon on the Board Fáilte webcheck programme. SEO me hole.

Good post by Barry on Facebook ads.

Congrats to Enterprise Ireland on their Silicon Valley blog.

Brilliant brilliant brilliant. This guy’s Fiat van was a piece of shit so he put all this issues with it on the side of the van.

The Irish Spatial Data Exchange. Nice.

If you’ve watched The Wire Season 5 you know this is exactly the story of newspapers in America.

Great videos from Google themselves on how their search systems work.

Love this T-Shirt.

Pizza Hut Pizza ordering app on Facebook. Clever. One day an Irish company will figure out that they can do the same for the Irish market.

Gladwell on genius. Nice audio piece.

    Not that I am the world’s most grammatical or spelling bee winner blogger you understand but I think EI’s Silicon blogger needs a spell check and read through before pressing publish. I believe some VC’s and other such types get pernickety about that sort of thing 🙂

    Thanks for highlighting the EI Silicon Valley blog Damien. It’s in a pilot phase at the moment but I hope it will evolve to become an important source of information for all EI clients based in the Valley or any Irish person with an interest in what’s happening here for that matter.

    I guess now all I need to do is learn how to spell! Advice duly noted Suzy

    Why is a Facebook application for ordering pizza any more useful or any better than ordering online via their website? You still have to sign up for a pizzahut.com/pizzahut.co.uk user account so it’s not like you’re being saved any steps. Now, if it grabbed your address from your Facebook profile instead…
