I'll be on this morning's Tubridy Show on RTE Radio one with Richard Delevan, late of the Sunday Tribune. The topic we've been set, like the leaving cert essay, to discuss is 'Political Hactivism'. UPDATE: The discussion can be heard here (Realplayer link) from 49 minutes in.
Some notes from my technology slot on the Right Hook. I like the radio, more than almost all television at this stage. I've hardly started to explore the wealth of shows that are available, but I'm already a fan of New York PBS station WNYC.
The heading is a little misleading. I may be appearing with Andrew Keen on the Right Hook (currently being hosted by Damien Kiberd) at some point in the next few days. Nonetheless, if you have anything you wished you were able to say to Mr Keen on reading his book, or any points you long to hear made leave a comment.
Above and beyond the call of duty, Conor O'Neill of Loudervoice gave me a call today to explain how to force Twitter to quit its playacting and let me finish jumping through the hoops to get people's texted eaterie reviews from their phones to the new Eateries blog.
I'm standing in for Karlin on the Right Hook's Technology slot next Monday. I thought I'd throw out an invite- if anyone thinks there's something I ought to cover or introduce to George's 80,000 or so listeners, leave a message. Make sure that a non-technical Classics graduate such as myself can understand it.
Those of you who watched this Daily Show clip linked from my last post may have noticed Fox's Geraldo Rivera (he of Al Capones's Vault/Huge Mustache/Complete Dickhead fame) as good as accuse someone of Anna Nicole Smith's murder, advising him to "lawyer up". It'd be nice to think "oh don't worry, it's just Geraldo, and on Fox News to boot".
For those interested, Rósín English has been touring the country, asking people at constituency level about what are the issues that are important to them locally. She also talks to local journalists and candidates to try to get a flavour of how the seats will fall. You can find a record of these shows on the (much improved) RTE website.
