Web Awards stuff has/had me busy so that’s why the lack of posts.
Looking forward to this gig in Triskel Cork on Saturday, the lovely Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh is playing.
Apply for Late Late Toy Show tickets.
On that, list of 2014 Christmas Pantos.
Roy Keane Rant fanfic.
Clarity as a business model. Lovely way of looking at super clear and honest ads. There was a bit of this where ad agencies started making clients make better products so they didn’t then have to lie and confuse to sell shitty things.

Any store, no matter how small, can offer an online experience when you walk in.
A ZipCar broadcasts a signup page, allowing you to immediately drive away.
JOMO! The Joy Of Missing out. Yes.
And on the topic of JOMO, one day I’ll get around to talking about my personal trainer, David and the huge progress achieved in the past few months after going to him. I went with back problems but the side effect of fixing them has been the various issues I had with insomnia were kicked away too. It’s so exhilarating to be falling asleep before settling into bed. Another side effect is I’m now a 28 inch waist. I’m 12 again. I want to start a blog, yet another one around sleeping and sleeping issues as I seem to notice more and more people are having them. Definitely a link between this and the always-on life. Anyway, this is almost a public promise to go through this in the future here.

Fascinating story of two guys building an art tool that hasn’t been made in 100+ years, the very end is very enlightening too.
