Featuring M I C O N S . I love using micons they are so so micons. Micons.org refersI mean its not good manners to kick a person when they are down but…. Offaly kicked me….Old thinking prevails people must (hate the word but) embrace New Technology. It offers a platform for moving forward. The Internet Rules my world why not yours? It is a “socialist” yes I know the word has so many connotations but. So many resources on the net are free. Skype is a perfect example. We have a free world wide video telephone system. If you have a computer and are in front of it the telephone is almost redundant in so may ways. Why does not Offaly County Enterprise board through of the archaic 20th century modalities and embrace new thinking? Why have I not been supported?
Ireland is to be bailed out of its financial crisis either by the EU or by the UK. What will happen? Old thinking with no solutions except more of the same.Wake Up Ireland
And here is the video:
Or if you would prefer here is the animation of the video:
As a recognized Bi Polar Manic Depressive currently incarcerated in Portlaoise I aphorise a lot. My favourite “how come you look so good Philip ? Whats the secret of your success? My answer “Clean Women” lol
So, hows things with you then? Im a bit pissed but I guess thats ok. I haven’t … anyway thats another story. I was feeling a tad depressed, bit homeless and I had a fight with my ex (arsehole she is) anyway. What to do? So I popped into Dunne Stores and found some 37.5% Gin and sat outside had a smoke and had a few gulps and began to mellow. Tucked it into my sports bag and headed to the pool. Im typing this is the foyer of the bridge btw. Anyway i headed to the pool. It was a bit mad because it was a kids splash thingy so I just headed to the spa pool and sunk into the hot bath. Watched the kids being kids. I closed my eyes and was transported back to another time when kids were disturbing my wa. It was at the Taj Mahal. About 4pm in the afternoon and the kids were running around screaming in the inner tomb and I thought omg this is a soul in torment (well it is a tomb). I went back around midnight. No one was there and it was a full moon. The only way to see the Taj is on a bright full moon. Believe me it inventwd the word ethereal. I went to the inner chamber and chanted OM. It resonated. It circled and transmitted it was OM. The kids in the pool were a bit distant and I began to feel calm. The hot jets of water massaging my nether regions I began to unwind.
Ive movede upstairs coz I needed a smoke. There is a wedding going on but Im the other end. Hang on while I roll a fag. Ok. In the pool I began to feel calmer more in tune. My pregnant friend walked past with her 4 yr old. I said to her that she would have it in the pool she said she was due in 3 weeks. Ha! A couple of ladsw got into the pool and we had a bit of a chat. One of them said the doc had told his wife to stay out of the pools, too hot too much pressure…. I decidede to head outside before the kids found it. I think they know (the staff) that I like to relax so they didn’t turn on the jets. I stuck my feet on the shelf and floated in the warm water hands behind my back relaxing in the most comfortable sofa ever. It began to rain quite hard and i floated in the darkness with just my face exposed to the rain…..I relived some rain moments….. another time….I was unwound. I floated there for about 20 minutes I think….. Then headed into the pool. Everyone had gone. I eased into the water and swam a slow breswt stroke for a couple of lengths, then underwater for half… Its wonderful when no one is there. The water is so calm and I do not make waves. I swam a few lengths doing my slow breast stroke then a few on mty back doing my jelly fish pulse… then into the sauna… got boiled like a dry lobster had a chat with a nigerian guy then suitably internally superheatede went back to the internal spa pool… Ill finish this off in the morning, its getting a bit chilly and Im feeling a bit tired… later guys…
Why did the organizers of the dot com address throw away millions by not streaming the event? 5 bucks to view each keynote speaker of choice. 15 bucks unlimited access. Sell the vids, sell the t shirts, sell the complete transcripts. Access freebies. Jesus guys it was a Gig! Duh…Of Course they could have streamed it for free and helped make the world a better place….btw just for the craic I let the template put in hyper links.
In the longer term I plan to create a Virtual Dublin within Blue Mars. It will Have a Hub : This Hub will be a fusion of elements, Virtual and Real.
The Hub will be a Distribution of web addresses that have identifiers:
.net Will be a network of the most common networking applications.
.biz Will be instruction into Microsoft Office and SharePoint, coupled with Blogging. As an adjunct html will be learnt. HTML is the language of the web and its principles and common tags need to be known
.org will be accessing Free Stuff of which there is an awesome amount.
Hi Everybody!Philip from Bog Of Allen dot com (one day people will say “Hi Dr. Phil”) . Anyone got a camera phone, an Internet connection and a Youtube account? I have, someone else film this please and put it on Youtube. Anyone got a Laptop a webcam and Skype? Ok we can stream this live over the net to at least 1 person. Ok. People say Twitter is inane people just talk about their pets and what they had for breakfast. Heres my Tweet. Oh Ladies? Could you write this down? I would ask a man to do it but it involves Thinking Writing and Listening and we all know men can’t multi task (And still get paid 40% more than you!) Anyway my Tweet:
My Cat Eats Toast Freud Loved Cats and Cocaine Merchant Bankers Rule on drug money BeKool dot net with a k #craic #crs
OK? My Cat (my pet) eats Toast, Toast is really important. When the first black proto human (OMG we are descended from Blacks? Thats worse than being descended from monkeys) was on the African savannah and a lightening bolt set the place on fire he said “Great, Now I can make Toast!” Freud a buzz word – hey guys remember when you were a kid and you saw your mum in a bra and felt stirrings? Oh scary stuff. Freud loved cats he said “Time spent with Cats is never wasted. ” When he discovered Cocaine he thought he had found the answer to all humankinds problems (some people still do) until his best mate OD ed on the Stuff. Merchant Bankers Rule on Drug Money who bailed out the banks to the tune of over 300 million dollars in cash? Coke dealers laundering their drug money. Be Kool dot net with a k advertises my web site. #craic in Irish, a bit of craic, any craic means FUN! I spelt it for them in case there were coke users in the audience (crack cocaine) and finally #crs = cockney rhyming slang Merchant Bankers = Wankers. Wankers Rule ! thanks Be Happy
Shame I never got to deliver it……oh OnlyOwls dot com is really Kool. so BeKool dot net with a k
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.
STOP PRESS: I HAVE JUST RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM OFFALY COUNTY COUNCIL:
at 8.30 am this morning I placed my business card measuring 8.5cms x 5cms with “Bog of Allen” written on it. I Placed the card in a Cars door sill so that it would not blow away and litter. I told the person in reception that I had Done This. She said ok and can I have one. At 11.54 am I received a phone call purporting to be from the council 05793 46800 (They Masked Their ID) that I am to be prosecuted AND Fined for littering. My Response : See You In Court. Come visit me in MountJoy as I Wiil not pay! I spent months, mostly without pay authoring Their Web site (link here in the Internet Archive) in March 2000 to April 2001 If You look at the source code
philp finlay-bryan Typical BIFFO!
Response : I passed a skip grabbed suitable materials and made this the text reads :Official Offaly County Council say BogOfAllen.com is (in very very small letTers)to Be FINE (in very very small letter) D (in very very smal letters ) For LitTering. I paraded up and down from 4.30pm to 6pm.
Today marked an historic event for Blue Mars and perhaps a glimpse of the future of how virtual reality and the real world are now indisputably partners. I made this video prior to the conference.
I made this comment on their blog:
I Love It! Very impressive! I make videos of Blue Mars, have been for the past year and I am usually the first when a new city comes on line. I am not an employee of Avatar Reality so I do tend to shoot from the hip, I speak my mind in the Forums . I am a [Guide] . I am also a born and bred Londoner. So there’s my CV. You have been developing this for a while, it shows. Your beginning tutorial conforms with proper educational learning techniques. Perfect. You are Business Oriented, excellent, lets make money. Your design and features are NOT second life, I make this point as you have adopted the innovative design and ethos of Blue Mars. It is Not a game, you understand and demonstrate this. I call it a chat room with nice curtains, guess I have to upgrade to Conference and Design Centre now. Your Teleportation system is superb. In every other city in Blue Mars I have eschewed tps as I like to explore on foot. (I do like flying though so perhaps incorporate a Hover Spawn) Your City is the first in BM where I will teleport by choice. Congratulations Dudes (non gender specific) and Welcome To Blue Mars. Be Proud! Your video is being uploaded as we speak philipjamesbryan on Youtube

P.S. I design web sites if you need a hand, we can do a Quid Pro Quo … do get a favicon for your site.. it takes 30 seconds and its free…
The Conference started just after 9 am UK Time, this is the second hour.
For the sake of brevity, I reduced the quality and because I encountered a hardware glitch on my computer which was recording the event after 36 minutes, the video is incomplete. I was watching it on my 21 inch widescreen monitor the software was running on my 14 inch linked secondary monitor. Remember and note this :
I was in Ireland conecting to a server in Hawaii
Jim was in Honolulu
DLabs were in the UK streaming the conference to the server in Hawaii
One (and there were others) Mako was in Australia, we chatted during the conference
There was a live audience in the UK watching us
I think Jims presentation slides were on a computer in the UK and he was manipulating them from Hawaii?
The message? One World interacting in real time via The Internet in a 3d Environment. I have seen the future and, friends, I am living it. Actually what we were doing was: We were sharing one networked computer
I have been part of The Blue Mars Community for almost exactly one year. It has not been a wasted year, it has assured my future in the 21st Centuary. I fell proud and honoured, a little humbled but mainly very very excited.. You weren’t there? Shame…..
