Fluffy Links – Monday December 1st 2008

Grandad’s new book is out soon. Pre-order.

Indiecater have a Christmas Album out. All new tracks from some great artists. It’s December, I’m allowed to use the other C Word now. Shurrup.

Nice work from Cormac on looking at Google search results that come back in Irish but are pretty weak at giving good results for what was asked.

Fine Gael did a dumb thing? Noooo.

What a cool editing/writing policy from Bloomberg. No buts.

Social media might not be right for you. Perilous waters. Danger Will Robinson.

Go Boards.ie, topping monthly web stats already.

This was one VERY weird interaction on Twitter.

Sorry but I don’t see why a bit of work 20 years ago on a song entitles you be like an ugly Baldwin brother, you know, living off that whiff of fame forever after. I think the BBC were far too sympathetic to the artists over this. Copyright should be short-term advantage not some damned nobility right.

Fox News told Fox off by Obama’s people.

    That Will It Blend made me get sick a little in my mouth.

    That Das Shadow stuff is pretty good isn’t it? Grows on me more each time I hear it too. Great to see this kind of stuff, both audio and visual coming out of Cork!

    It’s worth noting in the boards.ie/stats story that those figures are only based on a certain amount of sites that bluemetrics is installed on. Many larger Irish sites aren’t represented as data is still being collected. I’d expect a significant reshuffle in a few months time.

    I’d spotted that Kottke Bloomberg thing and thought I’d point out how funny I thought it was in the Economics sections at boards.ie where i post fairly regularly.

    Turns out no one in banking has a sense of humour, i was totally rounded on for daring to suggest it might make anyone look stupid ….
