Fluffy Links – Friday October 31st 2008

Pat Phelan is the champion. Net Visionary of the year. Well deserved. Congrats Pat. And congrats to so many other bloggers and Twitterers who did so well at the Net Visionary Awards last night. Michele took home two gongs himself. Good on ya.

Patrick Collison’s Wikipedia iPhone app gets a nod in the New York Times. Fantastic. Both the app and the fact that the NYT big upped it. Well done Patrick.

Inspiring piece by Jim Carroll about the future of music. Now is the big now.

Eamonn Gilmore yesterday said the Green Party are dead. Markham used to vote for them and pretty much agrees with current sentiment about them. (Two links in one week Markham, fiver please) Meanwhile former TD Dan Boyle tells bloggers to seek Anger Management therapy. That’d be my vote next time Dan and my promise.

Rick finally gets recognition.

You’ll now get banned from Boards.ie if you use legalese or threaten legal action. Big win for freedom of speech there. There are some Matlocks on there lauding up their legal knowledge and spouting legal advice who really ought to know better. Clowns.

Goodnight Mars Rover, Sweet Prince. It had a fantastic, utterly engaging and fun Twitter account. NASA has made space and science fun again and this was a prime example.

The Simpsons takes the piss out of Mad Men. Love it.
