Seems there’s some mini-competition to add as many subscriptions as you can to your feed before the awards.
Don’t forget you can get email subscriptions or RSS/feed subscriptions to this blog too. This should give you a glimpse into my thoughts and what I am looking at. But to expand on that you can always view my public bookmarks here and you can view my LinkedIN (Networking) profile here.
Here too is the feed for the Irish Blog Awards.
Via Iain Dale is news that the Tories will scrap ID Cards, if elected. But replace with what?
Seems many French are moving out of France to enjoy better working and living conditions elsewhere.
Telecommuting isn’t working in our highly connected world because we are too connected. Very good points I had not considered. We interact with more and more people every year thanks to tech so it makes sense that a lot of the work we do now is maintaining these relationships.
Origami remote control. Cute but a bitch to click through channels quickly, I bet.
And yet another web project from Rob.
Gay B&B owners in the UK are against new anti-discrimination laws which would oblige them to offer their rooms to straight couples. Oh my. Reminds me of the gay club in Cork that turns you away for being straight or looking straight. I know a girl that had to “dress more lesbian” if she was to get in. Charming.
Ice ice baby. Scary ice.
Stephen Colbert – The Most Poetic Fucking Thing I’ve Ever Heard
As Tom notes, the Bodega is closing. This Friday in fact. I really loved that bar. Anyone interested in going in there on Thu or Friday evening for one last hurrah and to thank the staff. Or most of them anyway. With a few exceptions the staff in there are wonderfully helpful and friendly and quite chatty. You feel welcome in the place unlike so many other places these days. What’s worse is that they’re turning it into a clothes store or something. Jesus. More here on Boards.ie too. Also more here and here.
Anyway, who fancies calling in and having a pint there to say goodbye?
Nailing jelly to a wall. Can’t be done, I’m betting it can if thought through. Ideally this should have been a video on YouTube.
Fucking with parking meters using well-placed stickers.
William Gibson’s new book is called Spook Country.
Here is Duke on Jools Holland:
Trolling Mac fans:
Doctor Who and the Dalek where the Dalek is uttering dialog from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Part 3 of “I didn’t ask for your f… advice”. Roam4Free recently launched their roaming pre-paid sim card. The idea is that receiving calls and making calls will be cheap with this sim. The main drawbacks for the service are that people will have to ring an Estonian mobile number to contact you and the same goes for texts. I may be wrong, but I don’t see anywhere on the site that says you can update your friends with your new number. A simple service to add then would be to upload an address book and have a simple “Update my friends” option which would ask for some dates and numbers and you could sent texts out to all your friends, colleagues and clients with a text message like the following:
This is Pat Phelan, this is my number while I’m traveling. If you want to contact me from February 12th to February 23rd or anytime I’m away then use this number.
