The title of this week’s podcast is a translation of a phrase Michele tweeted earlier this week: “Níl aon chúlú sa tsamhlaíocht” – there’s no recession in imagination! Michele found it in his email in a newsletter from Kila – the band who’s music you hear at the start of each episode of the podcast. Kila have plans to record a new album shortly: we’ll be waiting with interest!
Michele’s finally given in and got himself a Kindle. He admits he was reluctant to tear himself away from wood pulp, but his recent experience of travelling with Steve Jobs biography in his bag convinced him it was time to change.
Applications open today for new generic Top Level Domains. So can I set up .conn? Michele explains it’s not that simple!
We also discuss Netflix’s launch in Ireland and you can hear more about that on Monday in a special guest interview with Conor O’Neill. That’s part of a new expansion of the podcast service on technology.ie: we’re spinning out the guest interviews into a podcast of their own.
Another new feature is Websites for Fun and Profit! I’ve gone and got myself a new cloud server from Blacknight and plan to make it work for me in 2012.
