Fluffy Links – Monday March 15th 2010

Monday, March 15th, 2010

I’ve been watching and dipping into Kilcullen Diary for years at this stage and it was great the other day to finally meet Brian who looks after it. To me it’s a pretty perfect example of what a local blog can do for a community.

I like this, guy in Court in Ireland suffers claustrophobia, Judge moves court outside.

Co-Working club Limerick is kicking off.

Cybercom are looking for a Communities Manager. Nice job that.

Loving it. See the visitors list to the White House.

Bing gets a truck load of traffic from … Google.

Fantastic piece on Gander, small town in Newfoundland that had 40+ planes land there on 9/11 when all planes got grounded. 6k people land in a town that holds 10k people. Lovely story of people looking after others.

Kid Cudi – Pursuit Of Happiness

How you like me now?

Philip Glass doing a solo show in Dublin on June 22nd.

Facebook Pages, good for local businesses, see?

This is one of the best business blogs around. Showing off your product does NOT need to be like a brochure.

Good to see some people can tell Steve Jobs where he can shove it.

Social media campaigns to be regulated in the UK?

Can’t pay attention anymore? Reclaim it.

Lá na Gaeilge is coming up. Are we ready?

Also, Ghost Estates as Gaeilge:

“Eastáit na Si” or “Fairy Estates” is, of course, open to misinterpretation in today’s sexually-oriented parlance, but is an elegant Gaelicisation of this modern landmark feature and can be linked to the longstanding regard in which the Irish have held the “little people” or those from an “domhan eile”.

How economics underlies every aspect of the Google business model, blog post from Geary.

Enterprise Boards could be going, via EI comment?

Played with this app on Saturday, use iPhone to survey a crowd. Crowdscanner.

The top ad music of 2009.

Check out what Penguin Books have planned for the iPad.

Using your network to get innovating.

The Cork French Film Festival started yesterday. Some good films on the list this year.

Emily O’Reilly not exactly a fan of social networks and the fact that they can’t be trusted sources but it’s not all bad, a previous speech from her shows she does think they have some value and are a good utility for engaging with the populace and promoting the work of Ombudsmen.

And on the idea of trusted sources. Hoax call to a radio station and the press tell the world about Gordon Brown’s tangerine scream.

Excellent post by JP on sharing, privacy and changing cultures.

One step beyond, Google phones can autotranslate documents you point them at.

Nice video of Freelance Whales, live.

Via An Cathach, great ad for Nolan’s Cheddar.

Eddie Lenihan documentary on TG4

Eddie should be declared a national treasure. Jealous of Allan and his pics.

Dragon’s Den‘s Gavin Duffy is a-blogging.

Recession the Musical. Bet they’ll go bust and merge with Menopause the musical. That’ll be cranky.

And now for pure class. Rent is in the Opera House next week.

Ah Irish people. Monorail proposal on Your Country Your Call.

Consumers have the power. This guy isn’t happy with a car dealer.

Hah. Fetch balls. Really?

Scroll down for some nice concepts of superheroes in a retirement home.

I was wondering where Chris Cunningham went. Gucci ad.

Everyone’s heard about the Word-camp

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

A-well-a everybody’s heard about the word w-w-w-word, word, word, w-word’s the word. A-well-a word, word, word, the word is the word, Wordcamp!

35 speakers, some of them lip-smackingly good (from a genuine content distribution perspective), two days, three streams. 50 quid. 50 quid for two days! There’s value for money and there’s this. Plus 200 geeky folks networking. G’wan, go, even for one day.
