Fluffy Links – May 14th 2007

In Dublin for the day. Blog on autopilot. Tune into TodayFM around 5pm to hear me talk broadband for almost the very last time as part of IrelandOffline. Text me if you are around Dublin from 1300 to 1900.

Walter reviews the Mix 07 tech conference.

Steve Jobs has some choice quotes for Greenpeace. Love it.

I think [Greenpeace] particularly depends too much on principle and not enough on fact. You guys rate people based on what people say their plans are in the distant future, not what they are doing today. I think you put way too much weight on these glorified principles and way too little weight on science and engineering.

The least influential people in business in Ireland. The Sindo have a go at regulators, IBEC and the Comp Authority. Might need to reg to read it.

Jane Fonda back on the Colbert Report and freaking out the host.

Like Swings but hate heights? Not for you so.

Speaking of fears, don’t like flying, then don’t watch this.

Late to the party again? Only seen this now, via IsADubVote for the Muppet Party.

Via John Mortell – Bertie Temple Bar:

Via Irish Eagle is the cast of Cold Case (US) speaking as gaeilge:

    That plane one is actually quite reassuring. They lost the engine on take off, the most hazardous part of the flight and when you need most power. Despite that they were able to continue the climb out and successfully return to the ground.

    There was a time when that might not have ended so well. It just shows how far the technology (and regulations) have come. Twin engine aircraft are required to be able to complete their take off on ONE engine.

    There’s some really interesting stuff coming out of TG4 recently. Fair played to them.

  3. Adam says:

    Is that just well edited or did they actually do that scene for TG4 (or for the show?)

    Very well made either way.

    Did TodayFM require that you have no bite? Reading your blog is much more informative about the state of broadband and you’re well able to get the point across about what a shambles comreg are.
    The interview didn’t capture any of that.

    And then listening to Dempsy and the other moron, bah, looks like every vote is for the same thing
