Indeed. I agree with Joe. Brian Caulfield won Technology Person of the year. Met the guy a few times and he’s very in tune with technology and one of the few people that was involved in venture capitalism that took the time and effort to come to Barcamps and other events and share his widsom.
I’m off to Wicklow today as I’m up early on Friday morning giving this blog training course. Sign up if you want to learn how blogging is good for your business and what is involved in business blogging. I’m staying here tonight. Pricey but I hope worth it for the location. Can someone cold call them about their site and offer to fix it?
Evil Eamon Ryan is now leaving it up to Junior Ministers to announce the bad news about broadband rollout in the sticks. National Broadband tender winner not announced til mid-2008. I’m betting late 2008 meaning people won’t avail of this scheme for up to two or three years after.
How do we get Girl Talk to play in Ireland? Speaking of gigs, anyone going to the Final Fantasy gig on Dec 11th? I’m going to Lapland the next day I think. (Not the club. Boo!) A Hawk and a Handsaw are on the same night as Final Fantasy. Gah.
Want to try out some ice cream recipes? Want to get credit in an ice cream book and get a copy of the book. Talk to Kieran Murphy now. Yes, another blogger with a book deal. There’s gold in them thar blogs.
Bank holiday weekend is over. Boo. Hiss. Here are some fluffy links to soften that hangover.
Treasa is looking for your help. She’s building a Wiki on social outlets for as many locations as possible in Ireland. The wiki/site is at NowILiveHere.com She gives an example:
if you live in Letterkenny and go to this site, Iâ€™d like you to be able to know that in fact, there is a flower arranging club if thatâ€™s what takes your fancy, that thereâ€™s a session in such and such a bar on a Thursday, that the local Vincent de Paul have meetings on such and such a day
For all those people complaining about their Google pagerank going mad. Seems it is being restored. Not for all though. For all of those fucking up the net by gaming the system and whoring links on your blog for a few pence to fumble in your greasy till, serves you right for being greedy.
And yes that is me in the Examiner but no, I no longer have that bad facial hair thing going on and I’m a little lighter too. Pic was taken earlier this year.
