Oct 2010: This list will no longer be shared with any PR or Marketing companies due to abuse of the list.

Photo owned by unusualimage (cc)

Every week there appears to be events where bloggers are invited to come along, be they briefings, parties, product launches etc. All fair enough but it now appears to be the same old faces again and again at these. At this stage I’d rather see others and not me invited to events or sent beer, chocolates and magic beans by post. So I’m putting a list together that I’ll share with PR/Marketing people so that a wider and more diverse group of people might get invited along to events. If you want to get invites or get sent products to review or try out then fill out this form. For this list to be shared with companies they’ll agree to not add you to mailing lists of any sort.

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.

Johnny points out a social network in Ireland for keeping fit.
