Google sent out an email today to Feedburner users with the ominous subject, “Upcoming changes to Feedburner”. It’s Google so my first thought was that they were about to shut it down. No, it’s not quite that bad, but they are shutting down parts of the service. Starting in July, […]
Lego The Dot Conf
I think I have to agree with Damien. This is the best trailer for a conference ever! It’s for The Dot Conf in Dublin on July 22nd. I won’t be going but there’s a great line up of speakers!
The death of blogging, again
One of the videos from The Irish Blog Awards celebrated the repeated demise of Irish blogging. Darragh Doyle and everyone else did a great job with this video. Check out Award winners, lots of great blogs there!
Irish Blog Awards 2009 Photowalk
About time I posted these. The Blog Awards took place in Cork this year, last February, and before the big night, a good number of photographers wandered around Cork City. I posted several IBA09 photos on my photoblog already but here are a few more: BTW – if you’re in […]
How not to advertise a blogging event
Don’t search for your event topic and spam the blogs you find. At least make the effort to look up the blog author’s name and send them an email. I would have gladly plugged Kinsale Arts Week if they had been polite. Big Bad Fail.

Will has an easy way to verify that @ryantubridy is real: @ryantubridy @DamienMulley @RickOShea validity test. What socks […]
The Irish Blog Awards in Pictures
As I may have mentioned once or twice before, we were at The Irish Blog Awards on Saturday night. Here are a few photos. They’re after the jump because there are 70 there and I’d hate to see them load every time someone loaded the front page of my site! […]
Back from The Irish Blog Awards 2009
Jacinta and I are just back from the The 2009 Irish Blog Awards and we’re elated after the experience. If I thought I could convey half the good humour and energy and enthusiasm I’d try but I know I’d fail dismally. It was a wonderful night, full of great people […]

The way I see it, there are three stages to web browsing: The web is new. You visit the blogs of friends and colleagues every day. You use Gmail or Yahoo mail and check in on your favourite sites a few times a day. It quickly becomes tiring visiting websites […]
