Dublin Web Summit
Web Entrepreneur sinks into Irish Bog at Twitter / Skype /Youtube Conference
Bog Of Allen Tullamore Ireland: One year ago application was made to the Offaly County Enterprise Board (OCEB) for funding of “Weddings On The Internet dot com”. Using the latest software and Internet resources people at a wedding would sms pictures of weddings they were attending from their mobile phones for incorporation into a web site which would be live within an hour of receipt at a customized URL. Research at that time predicted the possible demise of cameras, as mobile phone technology was so advanced as to risk redundancy. Microsoft was backing the company providing ANY Microsoft software free of charge in perpetuity. The application fulfilled ALL the criteria for a business startup.
· It was refused on the grounds that the internet was not within the board’s purview.
In March 2010, research begun in 1986 by myself, culminated in a product that, supported by M.I.T. and others and detailed in a 1992 BBC Documentary Called “Hyperland”, the first working Micon (Moving Icon) was created. A 62 page research document was presented. See Micons.org. Application was made to OCEB for a grant of 3000 euros to develop this product.
· OCEB provided a patent lawyer. He said the product needed developing. OCEB refused further assistance.
In September 2010 application was made for 200 euros to assist myself to attend the Dublin Web Summit conference on 28th October to report for my registered online newspaper “Internet News”. This was billed by the Irish Times as a very significant event. The founders of Skype, YouTube and Twitter were to be keynote speakers.
· A week ago OCEB said they were too busy to consider it.
“Dear Philip, s you are aware the board is operating with reduced budgets in the current year and is attempting to support as many businesses as possible to staArt or grow their business. I regret…” Sean Ryan. It took OCEB 6 weeks to reply to my request.
On 14th October 2010 Irish Examiner : County and city enterprise boards (CEBs) are to get a €3.3m funding boost, creating more than 450 jobs, Taoiseach Brian Cowen announced today. The money will be channeled through the CEBs to help new businesses get off the ground and support existing ones re 9000 people are unemployed. I am disabled (mental health) and my only income is disability allowance of 195 euros per week. I run 80 global domains and 20 blogs. I have my own web hosting company.. http://bogofallen.coom/info.htmll refers. refers.
I will also be protesting a
to keep staff. I guess no one told Sean Ryan head of Offaly County Enterprise Board.
Outside the conference I will protest, vehemently and noisily at the ineptitude of government funded organisations in the Taoiseach’s constituency of Tullamore whe
t the inadequacies of Dublin Web Summit for using old fashioned ”Technology” in presenting the summit. Last week I attended a state of the art conference on line with the capacity of 4000 and available free of charge to anyone with an internet connection. It was run by an EU funded UK company ( d|labs ) and hosted by Avatar Reality based in Hawaii. It cost the organisers nothing. It occurred live in real time. http://onlybluemars.com refers.

I wanted to attend a conference in Dublin. Its really important. Founders of Skype Twitter and Youtube are going to be there. I cannot go because I am broke. DLAB at Teeside University hosted a conference on line last week. http://onlybluemars.com It was Free. Because you lot have set a bad example by doing Very Important Things for Free because it cost you nothing, you have set a bad example as far as all of us growing and becoming better and more interesting Human Beings. So Im going up to Dublin on Thursday to cause a Stink! Publically In A Very Very Loud voice. I will try to bring Dublin to a standstill or at least slow it down. Us Brits are not known for being shy! As you know one person can sorta make a difference …. My **** Release is Here. http://bogofallen.comGive us a hand please to Wake People Up, that its NOT all Gloom and Doom, that some of us are doing important stuff to overcome the madness of the “Merchant Bankers” who rule our lives. Just because Im disabled (manic depressive like Spike Milligan) and 61 years old wont stop me. So Don’t Panic Things Are in hand.
