Google says that Irish tech/dev people aren’t good enough for them. As is pointed out, a HR process where 13 interviews over 6-9 months is almost the standard is inefficient and just plain stupid. Who in this economic climate can wait that long?

Fergal of the Tuppenceworth clan is on Turbridy on Thursday Talking Twitter. Suggestions or examples welcome.

Not seen this before. Blog from theunemployed.

Final few days to donate those Jack and Jill phones before the draw. Still really really good odds to win some nice gear. Any old phone will do.

The next Open Coffee Cork is on Friday.

Alexia wrote a good post on Karlin Lillington’s 2009 “predictions”.

Interestingly Bernie also wrote a piece on it which was published a few hours after Alexia’s, though the timestamp on it says it was published 3 days ago.

Niall Harbison now has his own personal blog and has set himself a goal of 20k visitors a month. Nothing like putting pressure on yourself! G’luck Niall.

Beautiful. Claire has a super-cute business site now for taking pics of babies.

New blog, at least to me. Mark Coughlan.

And DJ has one that was new to me too.

Update. Nope, this is DJs.

Catholic Google. Ye what?

They’re needed. Micro-finances for apps.

Bye bye Donald Westlake. Parker rocked when it came to being badass.

Where the hell were ye? I was blogging all over the holiday and you only call over now? Awwww.

Last week to donate those Jack and Jill phones, then the draw. Really good odds now to win this gear based on the number of comments and links!

The numbers for 2008 in Irish Publishing.

A totally uplifting comment from JP on his own blog.

Seen this? Championship manager still game for Irish school kids to learn about business.

Yeah I don’t know is it a good idea in this climate to list your clients who are moving Irish jobs to Poland

Great take-aways from Loic on how to start a business in 2009. Advice culled from the 2008 Le Web.

Shel provides a nice template on how to write a business book.

Oh dear. Google staff are very cynical about their products if they call their new Friend Connect too “Friend Sense”. Google helps you make money off your buddies.

Sheeeeet. Obama style. This is for you Jim Carroll!

Wikipedia over DNS. Nerdcoretastic.

The Beeb tackles the Daily Mail pratwittery about their staff blogging too much.

New year, new blog from Gav Reilly. And resolutions!

New year, new blog from Liam Burke. Welcome back to blogdom Liam!

Killian from Sinn Féin has some 2009 predictions. A Yes to Lisbon eh?

Top visited blogs in Ireland? Alexa is always contrary when it comes to these things as a few dozen people with the toolbar and your blog as the homepage will boost you up. Kudos to Paul though on the hard work putting this together. Go super-sleuth!

Five things you should know about how to be a Media Whore.

Meanwhile Bargains Ireland tell you how to get around those Ryanair chargecard stings.

This is not a clever marketing idea at all. This is stupid. If people in your coffee shop ain’t buying coffee despite the aroma and look of your products, changing the network names to product names will hardly help. God almighty, THEY ARE IN YOUR STORE and you can’t get them to consume? Network names aren’t the issue people.

They say you use these to make sure you’re getting decaf. I’d use them to make sure the coffee has a proper kick. Guarantee they’ll be used to test your pee.

If you’re a nerd and have a girlfriend (it can happen) and you have no fashion sense (already a given) then you’ll think this Rubick’s cube bag would be a great present for your missus. She’ll probably say thanks too, she is afterall a very patient and understanding girl.

Congrats to Keith on his great gig in the East. Best of luck.

So TeenCamp is on January 17th in Dublin in Filmbase. Why not go along? If you’re a teen and want to do a talk or see a talk then go

Me talking shite about Twitter.

Frank’s suggestions for running a business in 2009.

Two more twitter accounts to alert you about bargains in Ireland. IrishConsumer and PriceAlerts

So I attended the first Team Tommy event Sunday and Monday, held at Castle Collison. It was a hoot and then some. Various people argue Tommy wasn’t shotgunning cans of Heino but I dunno… You had to be there I suppose. It was cool that he lined up a jazz trio too with a cool drummer. Total lie. I may be black and proud but I have no rhythm at all.

Bloody brilliant deals with Expedia to lots of places. See this thread about it.

Except the machine was to the left, not the right. They swap the machines every so often. That’s being too environmentally friendly.

Another Collison is online and blogging. Lily Collison is here. Two potential Best Newcomers at the Blog Awards.

Bit late to this but holy fuck, there’s Irish craftsmanship right there!

Colm Brophy gets Obamaified and shows you how to do the same.

Via Alexia. Someone got a tat saying they love Helvetica. Now I have a tattoo that has Helvetica font but crikey, I wouldn’t declare my love for a person on my skin, let alone a font.

Nice t-shirt from James.

Congrats to SCC English for winning Best Group Blog at the eddies.

Jason talks Declarations and Mary-Lou McFootinMouth.

Twas the day before Christmas on the No Nonsense blog

Playboy of the Western World, modernised.

Advertising standards eh!

The British Wind Energy Association, an industry trade group, has cut its CO2 reduction calculations in half after talks with the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority, which enforces rules on claims in advertisements.

Free and pretty Powerpoint animations/designs.

“There are no tragedies. Only plot twists.” Jeff Howe is the guy that wrote that book on Crowdsourcing and writes for Wired. His son Finn has been diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum and he is now documenting it on the blog A Boy Named Finn.

Shopping with Tesco and touch screens. Classy.

If you’re into analytics then the new YouTube channel from the Google Analytics people will be of use.
Neato idea. An unsilent night.

Online making more than printing the paper. Oooh.

Guy Tweets live after his plane crash. People watch CNN where airport spokesman has no info yet those subbed to the guy are way inside the fence.

The Times coverage of it is hyper-bitchy. How dare a commoner get attention over their news event!

Something new every three years. Not a bad idea. Bit like Malcom Gladwell’s 10,000 hours idea.

A Draper family Christmas.

Obama’s Team have a simple but powerful comment moderation policy.
