Are the Web Awards over yet? Ah yes. Some thanks.

Nice list of expenses of John Gormley. By nice I mean nice for some.

Conor gives his thoughts on a CIO for Ireland. The person will have to be corrupt from day 1 to get such a job. When a Govt makes it policy to not mention broadband in speeches you can bet the CIO will have to be superpositive about the piece of string people have to use in order to check email. Having a good CIO in a poisonous Government and connected to the sinister Civil Servants who are complicit in all of this will mean nothing good happens.

New blog from Hugh Linehan of the Irish Times.

One point is crucial: We still live our lives in the real world. When we need someone to fix our roof, repair our car or educate our children, we find these things near our homes. We elect officials to govern us by geography. We pay taxes based on geography.
