Enjoy voting today. Shame there’s no option for “Yeah ok but you lot are still gobdaws”

On that. Brilliant John O’Donoghue poster.

Great post from Des Traynor on building a web app and then growing it and finally selling it. One of the most pragmatic posts on this area I’ve read.

Making money from twitter and people who want text updates if people reply to them. People said this would not work for bebo and they were wrong. Maith and fear AgTweet.

Another competition on Food Fight, this for goody bags from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Looks like Donncha’s Cork photowalk facilitated by Hotel Pat and the Montenotte Hotel went well. Well done to Donncha on looking after everyone.

A video on a Yes Vote for Lisbon

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Under this video in the comments, no doubt the idiots from the Yes and No camps will forget the content of the video and it being humour and instead use the same forced bullshit they use everywhere else to not inform the public but verbally jerk themselves off at being “passionate” about a point. Point of order… Be warned.

TV shows of note – As suggested by you

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Been asking on Twitter what TV shows you thought were worth watching. My own comments added.

Mad Men is now a given. Glee too. (I’m in love with Glee at the moment)

Others suggested were:
True Blood (watched Series 1, meh to be honest)
Generation Kill (Bloody amazing)
Breaking Bad (Saw two episodes and saw it as just Weeds)

Cougar Town

Flash Forward

Peep Show
Damages (Series 1 was ok, 2 bored me quickly)
Nurse Jackie (great first few episodes but grows boring)
Lipstick Jungle

Any others?

Imelda May – “Don’t Tell the Devil” Live in Bruxelles

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

First time seeing this girl live and she’s lovely. Talent and a good rapport with the audience. Amazing band too.

Disclaimer: I was there via an invite from WHPR, a client of Diageo and I got free pints of Guinness at it. The double cheeseburger, hamburger, cheeseburger and twisty fries I got from McDonald’s halfway through were not on their bill. Probably a good thing.

Irish Museum of Contemporary Art and Drills

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Myself and Alexia called into the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art after both being at Science Foundation Ireland to chat to fellow blogger Frank Gannon. The ReFunct Symposium in IMOCA is all but gone but one of the art pieces is a drill suspended from the ceiling, leaning against a wall and this drill is connected to their website. When the website is loaded by someone, the drill goes off. Here’s a video of this in action and me trying to explain it as Alexia loads the site on her iPhone.
