The people of Cuba are allowed to purchase PCs at long last. I’m sure many played around with homemade ones anyway and nicked ones. I’d love to see what they created themselves, it’s amazing what they have done with their cars from the 1950s. Ingenuity, it seems, thrives in environment where there’s scarcity.

This Niall McElwee thing is full of twists isn’t it?

Loving the new and free Nine Inch Nails album. Loving the way they are marketing this even more. Pay attention record industry.

Read this piece about Gary Vaynerchuk. Fascinating guy. A total energy bunny and a very rich man thanks to blogs and videos.

Not a sitcom a SATcom. A comedy you download to your GPS device set on a motorway journey. A really interesting blend of technology and art.

So someone already made an open source of Microsoft Photosynth and it looks like an open source version of their surface table thing is available too. Imagine if Microsoft themselves open sourced their model? Better yet, the Zen, it might sell more than a million!

Uh gawd. Barbie’s makers try and spin a “green” campaign from leftovers of the most eco-unfriendly toys in the world. This will not end well.

New Irish blog called Scumberculosis. Pithy political and cultural commentary?

The “Bertie, Take Enda With You” Facebook group now has almost 400 members. There are 50 people around the country sporting the badges too.

Meanwhile another tribute to Bertie.

Eamon Ryan’s biggest fan (not me) has her own blog now. Yay.

Maybe it was herself then that paid for this statue of Eamon.

Pre-experience design. Fantastic post from Russell Davies.

This is interesting. A house from IBM’s master inventor that Twitters its energy usage.

FatFreeCart – free embeddable shopping cart for your website or blog

April and May seem to be some kind of season of data breaches. Hospital records now.

While in Italy a pissy Govt published everyone’s income levels before they left Govt.

Great essay from Marie Mulholland on the Marriage Equality group and their aims.

And then head over to Neilformer’s NEW blog and read his article on the issue.

Planning has started for BarCamp Belfast 08

Gordon’s doing a warts and all blog about his experience starting out with a new product.

How stupid are Marvel stopping a fanboy screening of Ironman?

Number plates to screw with speed camera databases.

This is a very short but inspiring article of what the future for some markets are.

# An abundance of information can create a scarcity of context
# An abundance of choice can create a scarcity of advice
# An abundance of content can create a scarcity of time
# An abundance of people competing for your attention can create a scarcity of reputational ways to choose among them

The BBC are going all techy with their Mayoral coverage.

Meanwhile I’m shocked Bertie didn’t win politician of the year.

Bobby Buckley (one of the Blog Awards sponsors) has had his website redesigned and I like it a lot. He’s got an interesting blog post on Gardens and their carbon footprint too.

Carrigaline are getting their Educate Together school in September as are Greystones. 12 got the nod from the Dept. of Education in total. Fantastic.

It’s not just me that’s a fan of Eamon Ryan. Mr. Wood Pellet Ireland has his say too.

Budget Travel has recently been sending out special offers using Twitter (a kind of rapidfire form of blogging).

Nope, that was me.
