New Irish Food Blog – Not Junk Food.

Twinnerparty. It’s a multi-location cooking event where people can log in to via Twitter.

Mick’s Garage are looking for a web designer.

Jonathan Siegel makes a rally cry against the IEDR.

Cork’s own Alan Gleeson gives Online Marketing tips to NMK.

So Rapunzel was actually an anti-abortion story?

Nice TEDx Amsterdam video on connecting The Arts and Communities.

Via Bookslut: Paige Williams spent $2,000 of her own money to produce an article about Dolly Freed for the New York Times. NYT rejected it. So Williams has it on her own site and is asking for donations. It’s a quality piece and deserves attention. One future of journalism?

    Nice one Damien, we hope our (Elly & I’s) new site will get people cooking real food. It’s so much better for us all and it’s so rewarding to sit down to a meal with friends and watch them enjoy it over conversation.

    How did she spend 2k doing that?

    It’s a quality piece, just not sure about her spend at all…

    That Dolly Freed article is a very good read alright, would have made perfect NYTimes Mag stuff too.

    If I read that Dolly Freed article without the added information you’ve included in your sentence I would not have been surprised to later find out it had been pitched *to* the writer by Random House. Total madness spending $2,000 chasing that. Similar features are ten-a-penny in newspaper magazines, albeit that one is above average.

    It’s completely uneconomical – verging on stupidity – for any freelance to spend such sums to try cover something like that without having excellent chance of reimbursment.

    It’s not a future of journalism, in my opinion, because the novelty factor of donating for journalism like that – which provides minimal social improvement – will quickly wear off once more journalists begin to try it.
