Annie sent me a picture of a dead deer the other day. Such a flirt. Here it is:
She’s got a new book out. It has nothing to do with cooking and roadkill.
She’s got a new book out. It has to do with her trip through America.
The official blurb says:
“To the Left of the Midwest’ is an exhibition of photography from award-winning blogger Annie Atkins’s first book. Compiled on the railroads from California to Texas, this travelogue chronicles a personal journey through the small towns and backwaters of the United States during Obama’s election in late 2008.”
The launch of it is tomorrow evening from 6pm at the Joinery in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. Why not go? It’ll be worth it.
Delighted to see Annie do this, she’s a wonderful photographer and an inspiring blogger. Sending that native American to collect her award at the Blog Awards that time was a bit precious though. But she still rocks. Turns out that native American wasn’t even genuine. Still, as I said, she rocks. Bought pigtails in the poundshop, could have made an effort, like. And a plastic axe. Honestly. Twenty has nice things to say too.
I like the idea of easy to build Google Android apps. Blogging and even Twitter allows unskilled people to show talent. Heck, lots of people started off as web developers thanks to Dreamweaver or even Geocities.
€50,000 in direct funding, as well as a three-month programme of support from the Ryan Academy for Entrepreneurship, which will include office space, mentorship and specially-designed networking and educational programmes
Cash is handy but mentoring with the right people is worth so much more.
Nice handy app for Android phones. Say when you have left a parking spot so others can find it. Open Spot.
