Hey Bernie, I'm in the Hartnett Enterprise Acceleration Centre on the LIT campus 3 days a week now. Let me get you a coffee some day you're around.

The problem is we don't need another (centralized) network, we need ONE network (not Twitter!). As Dave Winer says http://t.co/nCrqD6f6 Or Steve Sanderson - RT ‏@stevensanderson Why isn't microblogging decentralised yet? Email & web publishing don't need single host company to control them.

I read this blog post in Google Reader. Despite my liking for Flipboard I'll never leave my news flow entirely to the recommendation of friends. I've just remembered too that I wrote a blog post, probably several years ago, predicting that I'd be soon commenting on blog posts directly from within Google Reader. I was sure the plumbing was getting there. Pity it never did.

You could have always used a baking tray - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/advice/8870961/Weak-wifi-Use-a-baking-tray.html How much are baking trays these days?

I hadn't realized, but apparently you can collaborate on Foursquare lists. So feel free to edit mine if you like.

Nice one, my Limerick list is shamefully small compared with my Dublin one.

I left a few photos of coffee on Foursquare and Instagram today as I set out on a new journey to start grinding my own beans. First stop was Zest at the Limerick City Gallery of Art - a hidden gem I have to say. Beautiful setting & decor, gorgeous food and open, free wifi. That was followed by a brief fly-by of new pop-up coffee shop @canteen_ on Mallow Street and a bean run to The French Cafe on Catherine Street. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the strong cafe culture along the length of Catherine Street as people made the best of the rare summer sun.

I wouldn't worry about Weckler's cynicism - he has all the imagination of a... journalist ;-) Just-eat.ie have just launched a new bus advertising campaign with QR codes offering a discount. It'll be interesting to hear Emer McCormack's feedback on click-through rates.

Tip: I find that Klip.me sometimes fails on pages when Readability works fine.

Thanks Alex and Emmet. I'll definitely be writing elsewhere, probably more than I ever wrote here. The future is here and it's widely distributed ;-)

Ah thanks Walter - your last sentence is what makes me nostalgic for 'the good ol' days' of blogging when there was a great sense of camaraderie and community. I made a big deal about leaving Facebook a few years ago only to sheepishly return some months later so I don't want to make a big deal about this. I'm not giving up blogging per se, just this blog. Education is what floats my boat nowadays, more-so than entrepreneurship so that's my focus for now and MissionV will most likely get more of my long form attention.

On August 6th 2003 I launched this blog with (in retrospect) a cringeworthy post. Ah well, I only had an audience of one and didn't have a clue what I really wanted to write about but nevertheless knew I should... Continue reading

RT @TeachPaperless In 2012 "revolutionizing" edu by offering new textbooks is akin to "revolutionizing" RockNRoll by dropping a new Styx record. #Apple #edchat

I encountered a nice use for this today. After booking a hotel instead of printing the booking summary (to paper) I 'printed' to Kindle and now there it is, ready to produce at check-in.
