Brought to you by Blacknight, it’s the technology.ie podcast with Michele and Conn. It’s been three weeks since our last podcast – so forgive us if this one is a little long. We had some catching up to do!
Michele’s back from Montenegro where he attended the Eastern Europe ccTLD conference and Webfest.me and discovered the hotel with the World’s Worst WiFi! Back home it’s events season with IIA Net Visionary Awards next week and the Irish Web Awards and Eircom Spiders set for a showdown on November 1. And SkyCon is on next week in Limerick, with keynote speakers Mark Shuttleworth of Ubuntu and Randall Munroe of XKCD.
Yes, we know there’s a new iPhone – but Michele isn’t upgrading until he’s shopped around the carriers for a better deal for his company. And I’m just an Android fanboy. 😉
Michele, and others, write an open letter to ICANN. We discuss geeky lightbulbs, Kickstarter and Fundit and give a shout out to MissionV. They need your support to extend their virtual worlds education programme to another 38 Irish schools.
Twitter cards – now available for technology.ie (and blacknight.com)!
Finally, we’re bummed about KildareStreet.com – a grass-roots tool for e-democracy which has been rendered useless by changes made by the Houses of the Oireachtas.
