Useful Irish Web Tools

As well as GMail, Twitter, WordPress, Bloglines and Meebo, the other web tools I use on a daily basis and a few times a day are and Jazzbiscuit’s Image Search. They’re invaluable.

If I’m linking to anything on Twitter or emailing something to not so web savvy people then I’ll use Cathal Garvey’s URl shortening tool. It rocks. The latest version of it too produces a Q Code thingy, you know those new barcode things that some cameras recognize and turn em into urls?

JazzBiscuit Creative Commons Image Search

Online pop culture anarchist JazzBiscuit has an absolutely fantastic image search service that brings back creative commons licenced images. I’ve been using it for months now to tart up my blog posts and add a bit of colour. Nice one Jazzy.

Try both out and bookmark them. They rock.

Any others worth mentioning?

    Cheers for the link Damien. That QR Code really was just out of a selfish need, but has proved to be quite popular.

  5. I use JB’s RTE embedder to watch clips as it removes the ad at the start. And don’t worry about revenue loss RTE, if I’d bought something and then saw it on one of those ads I’d give it back.
