Recession wine. Another great design of wine bottle labels.

Interesting Facebook application from An Post. A bit like an addressbook.

The lads from got on to me a while back for some feedback on getting attention for what they do. One of the reasons I signed up with working with them is they use technology in some very clever ways, one of which is this: The Car Index – It’s a nice tool to show you some amazing stats about cars in Ireland. You can do checks of car models, county, whether they are new or imports etc. 88 BMWs were imported in January in Cork compared to 39 new. Only 7 new BMWs were purchased in April. Go play with it.

You remember the head of Amnesty International Ireland resending Susan Boyle mental health jokes on Twitter?
