Best Wedding Photos and Wedding evar!
Sabrina did a great blogging masterclass the other day and her slides are online. I’ve certainly learned a lot from the slides alone. I shoulda been there, shoulda woulda…

The Obama kool aid is in effect in Labour too. How many times did Gilmore say change?
Anything less than Gilmore becoming Taoiseach (what are the Paddy Power odds?) will make their recent conference look like a complete farce. Check out all the Gilmore for Taoiseach Posters:
Oh and: Cringe. (Isn’t that the tune to Oh Christmas Tree?)
Eolai has an art sale on again. I bought two from him last time round and have ordered another two now. Buying someone an original piece of art is always fun. Prices start at $25 and go up to $95 and includes free delivery.
Also while we’re talking about Art, “Colours From the Heart” is a new exhibition from Anne Rigney. It opens tonight in The Front Lounge, Parliament Street, Dublin at 6:30
Fun with the Green Party Flickr Stream.

There’s a profile of me in the Irish Times today, which would be flattering if the thing wasn’t such a load of shite. Conjecture, myth-making and truthiness posing as my life story.
And again Via the Rockser: Fionn Times has a blog.
Via Christian, Cybercom are running the Vodafone Pass the Pressie campaign on Bebo. It’s a bit better than yer man with the loaves but no fishies since it’s genuinely interactive, not write a poem interactive.

19, from Fermoy and running for local elections with the Greens. Already in the press. Anyone younger running in the locals?
It’s good to see young people going into real politics and not the make believe world of the Youth Wings of these parties. I really do wish him the best of luck and I hope him and a good many more younger people get seats. I wonder is this one of the answers to Fergal’s post? No page yet on the Green Party site for him but at least he can use the Internet!

Not one that perhaps you should give your friends or siblings but still an Irish book by someone that blogs: Trying to Conceive: The Irish Couple’s Guide
Bear with me here…
Via the National Dialup Scheme Three Ireland now are getting Government money to expand their mobile broadband market into areas other broadband providers are not going. Great. The EU says that’s cool.
But Three’s network is all data with voice going over it. Where they have service they have all service. Broadband and voice. Where three doesn’t offer a service, they use Vodafone. They pay them for this. If the Government pay Three to go into an area they were not before then they can offer voice too. Fabuloso! They can dump Vodafone and save a pile. But I bet those areas have a voice service from Vodafone, o2 and Meteor already don’t they? Now the taxpayer is giving an unfair advantage to Three in the mobile area.
Wouldn’t you sue if you were these boys? And then there’s eircom with some good exchanges that could have been enabled. They have good lawyers too.
So who’ll sue first?

This is modern marketing. Neil Gaiman encourages his readers to come up with clever ways of marketing his new book and in return he’ll send them personally signed goodies. A decentralised marketing army doing 100s of small things to spread the word, all for the price of a few pieces of merchandise.
Malcolm Gladwell fever online at the moment. So a person is an Outlier, what about a brand?
Living Colour were a band around in the late 80s early 90s and had some great songs. Found three on Youtube, pity SonyBMG has denied embedding them. Nothingness. Love rears its ugly head. Cult of Personality. Leave it alone.
