    It might be good to cross-reference some of Tom Raftery’s findings about blogging in business since the actual uptake of blogging in Ireland is abysmal.

    Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to attend this – any chance of putting the slides online?
    Also , do you have any good Case Studies as ‘Blogs making Business Sense’? The one that I can think of is O’Reilly books giving it’s authors space to blog on it’s webpages – a high profile platform for it’s writers and relevant , technical , content for the company.

    Paul – I’ll have to do the slides first 🙂
    Of course, after seeing your references on O Reilly I’m feeling rather small and insignificant ..

    All shameless self publicity 🙂 I’m sure you’d have a couple of articles in you about linux hosting and web 2.0 / blogging!

    … and just to up the stakes my slides for the IIA include 3 Bridges , 1 Tank and a reference to the Berlin Wall …

    Hmmm.. So it’s a competition is it?

    No , just couldn’t thinking of any better ways of explaining Web 2.0 to non technical people!
