Some Good News

I have to say, Some Good News with John Krasinski is a breath of fresh air in this time of quarantine and isolation. John picks up on good news stories from around the world and you’ll have to have a heart of stone not to laugh or cry or both […]

Social distancing in Blarney

Everything is local, but everything is also global now. The world feels a lot smaller. There’s one topic of conversation everywhere now and that’s the coronavirus (WB), SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) which causes the COVID-19 disease. It feels like Europe and North America sleep walked into this, […]

This is odd… dot blog

I’ve had some sort of online presence for twenty years, and that presence has been this blog for most of that time. When I started posting stuff online, PHP was still a toddler and I used a simple Perl script to merge html files with a content file before it […]

Ten Years at Automattic

I still remember the day in 2005 when Matt asked me to come work for him. I still remember the exact spot I was standing where I took that call. It was only a couple of metres from where I sit typing this now. Ten years, time has flown. I […]

Food for eating

Polldaddy is in Marrakesh for a week, staying in a riad in the medina. We had a delicious lunch today, probably the nicest we’ve had here in the riad and that’s saying something as they’ve all been exceptional.

Delicious Grillmarkaðinn

If you ever find yourself in Reykjavik make sure you book a table in Grillmarkaðinn. Every single bite was a taste explosion. So delicious! Monk Fish Beef Sirloin The ice cream dessert was actually a disappointment after the previous tasty dishes. As Lenny says, food in Iceland is damn good.
