John Breslin's blog
What a stressful but productive afternoon / evening. We migrated boards.ie's MySQL databases to our new database server, and took the opportunity to upgrade the site to the latest version of vBulletin.
Our new server is a bit of a beast - it has two 1.86GHz quad-core Xeons (eight processor cores), 16GB of RAM, and six 146GB SAS 15k rpm hard drives in RAID 1+0.
Thanks to regi and all at boards.ie for their support and patience today.
IT Association of Galway Announce Fidelity Investments Technology Conference Details… 'Enriching the Internet Experience'Submitted by John Breslin on Thu, 10/04/2007 - 19:34
I will be speaking at this event in two weeks time...
It was announced today that Fidelity Investments and Terra Nua in collaboration with ITAG are hosting a technology conference 'Enriching the Internet Experience' on the 18th of October in the Ardilaun Hotel. We invite you to join us for this prestigious event.
On the 18th of October you will leave with the answers and information to the question: 'Where do the predominantly social Web 2.0 applications fit within an Enterprise 2.0 structure?'
Up to a quarter of a million Eircom customers could be inadvertently sharing their broadband connections with strangers due to a security flaw in products supplied by the telecoms company.
I'd like to put out a call to donate to Concern and aid the current flood crises in Africa and South Asia. Thanks!
It's been two weeks since I launched SocialMedia.net and since then I've been trying to make one post a day. I just wanted to say thanks for all your feedback so far, and I hope that you will continue to find it of interest.
Here are links to and summaries of some of the recent posts:
Had a brilliant day on Saturday: great talks and panels, quality food, good weather, and fun networking in the Westwood afterwards. Overall, I enjoyed BarCamp Galway, and I want to again thank our helpers, speakers, attendees, and especially our sponsors - without whom the day could not have happened in the manner it did (t-shirts, pens, paper, coffees, buns, lunches, biscuits, drink and nibbles).
After some brainstorming with Conor and Ed yesterday, we came up with the following "streams" for BarCamp Galway, each of which will be held in one of our three rooms:
- Tales from the Front Line (Share Experiences)
- Boot Camp (Gain Expertise)
- The Great Escape (Breakout Sessions)
We're organising three panels for BarCamp Galway, one or all of which hopefully will appeal to various audiences:
