Here Is The Intro

Here Is The Conference:


NewThinking.info has the video in a better format but its a bit slow because of the owl

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.
  • LinkedIn, Facebook, Blue Mars, Twitter
  • .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.

.info will provide the overview….

Oh Dear I wish people would wake up. eCollege.bz for training

Heres my speech I didn’t give:

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

I Love Cool Iris

Carpe Diem ~ Seize The Day

Flat Fact : Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace. It is popularly translated as “seize the day”. Carpe means “pick, pluck, pluck off, gather”, but Horace used the word to mean “enjoy, make use of”..” And Idtei gave me Bucky

Enjoy, Make Use Of, Gather

For me, when I see something cool I enjoy it and then I MAKE USE OF IT! I Seize it. My PA had logged off my account and logged in to hers. When I was back in front of my computer I started Google.

WTF? Wow thats cool! What is it? I looked at the source of the page and it was described as a buckyball. Hmm, new to me. I did some searching and REsearching. Wow thats interesting. I should know this…did a bit more researching ….hmmm Fullerene… Great a little vid explaining it. Right I’ll seize that, so i turned it into an animation BECAUSE I KNOW HOW TO DO STUFF!! Here is the result >>>

I am now an expert in Molecular Dynathingys so please call me Prof Phil. Yea, right “Look daddy pretty moving pictures… ” but i do know more than I did yesterday and someone sometime somewhere might explain it to me.AND its now on my book shelf in my Library. You can download it and save it too if you wish. Bottom Line : Molecules especially this one are pretty goddamn important and just help me realise what an amazing universe we live in. Im not THAT bright I just work hard and love what I do. This helps a bit:

Fullerenes are a group of molecules made with only carbon atoms. These molecules exhibit very special properties. The reason why scientists are interested in understanding the behavior of fullerenes is because they have extra ordinary properties in superconductivity, electricity and elasticity. They could have numerous applications to improve many of our existing products and develop new products. There are lots of unexplained answers regarding the behavior of fullerenes. It is believed that making simulations of these molecules is the most safe and efficient approach.

I was chatting to my friend Idtei and out of the blue she mentioned Buckminster Fuller ! OMG gf you star! Look:

Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983)[1] was an American engineer, author, designer, inventor, and futurist.

Fuller published more than 30 books, inventing and popularizing terms such as “Spaceship Earth”, ephemeralization, and synergetics. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, the best known of which is the geodesic dome. Carbon molecules known as fullerenes were later named by scientists for their resemblance to geodesic spheres.

Bucky = Buckminster Bucky Ball. Oh Idtei I do love you you are a supastar!

Or was it out of the blue? Shes damned clever…..

More? Ok:

eCollegeCourses
“Time and Tide Waits For No Man” [sic] btw sic = This word is sometimes inserted in a quotation [sic], to call attention to the fact that some remarkable or inaccurate expression, misspelling, or the like, is literally reproduced. So many of our stock phrases use the masculine “Man” , for me this engenders the male superiority trip dissing Woman again. So use it please if you must quote.

{Geraldine B: could you ignore this next bit, as it is not formalised yet}
In life we must be aware of things around us. Yesterday I was walking around my home town eyes and ears akimbo when I heard a woman speaking agitatedly on the phone. “No, its closed! I don’t know if there is another cybercafé in town….” Huh? I went to Patrick’s door and yes sure enough the signs had gone. MyOffice Cybercafé was Gone! Philip : “Seize The Day!” I went home an hour later I had produced this :

Please consider the following: Tullamore has no cybercafé
In 1995 I started training people in ECDL type course. In 1998 I opened a cybercafé called Midnet. Both were very very successful. Often the cybercafé had to turn people away. When ECDL proper came out we were a registered training centre. We ran courses 4 nights a week and did this for nearly two years non-stop. It was very very successful. We were a wireless ISP, whereby you could connect to the Internet wirelessly within line of site from 5 Bridge Street. The mast is still there. We had repeater masts so we covered all the way to Charleville Castle. The Offaly County Enterprise Board were connected to the Internet through us. We designed web sites for Offaly County Council, the Midland Regional Authority and the Bridge House. We had (and have now) a secure server able to accept and process credit cards.
Why did we fail? Our Internet Connection cost us over £2000 per month now it would cost 60 euros. We were technologists and trainers. We lacked business acumen. I became very ill. I am no longer ill.
Today we have 9000 people unemployed. One of the key features to gaining employment is having the appropriate skills. In 2010 two vital, essential skills are knowing how to use a modern computer, especially Windows 7 and knowing how to use the internet. I am a qualified expert in both.
Consider this:
1. FÁS run wonderful on-line courses and other computer courses. I know as through them I am now a Microsoft Certified Application Specialist in Excel and by the end of the month will have my cert in PowerPoint. It would be great if folks had somewhere to practice with a knowledgeable person around to give them advice.
2. The Library has terminals and is involved with eLearning. They have four computers. It would be great if they had more but there is no reason why a cybercafé couldn’t assist.
3. Our school students need computer resources.
4. The VEC run courses, we can support the learning by having a practice area where friends could chat and practice their skills.
5. My courses can be run there. Not to replace existing courses run by official bodies but to compliment, polish and give advanced features not covered by standard courses. I am in the process of certification with FETAC
6. I will actively support those with disabilities and will have wheel chair access.
7. A cybercafé is an essential resource in any town.
Why have I asked you to read this? Because last time I did it alone. I will not make that mistake again. If I am to do this and approach the Offaly County Enterprise Board for funding I need community approval. I need a statement saying “This is a good idea, we agree with you”. If your organisation cannot do it then please give a personal statement with comments. If you have a notice board and you feel ok with this, please put it up. I am only a blow in.I walk around Tullamore and notice the empty premises. A new boutique has opened in Church Street. We now have 15 and all of them are offering huge discounts. And everybody is broke.

I photocopied a hundred and did the rounds of Professionals I knew personally, organisations I knew and shopkeepers I knew. I have 10 left.

I Seized The Day.

Epilogue : I made this this morning for Shaun’s Blog. Well, its International Beard Day and Shaun’s been chatting about it so did a bit more seizing and graphicalling.  Im in the process of setting up Neologising.com coz thats what I do. When I want a word that doesn’t exist i neologise, its kinda caught on. (ssshh its also fun). Of course to be a “proper” neologism its got to be accepted. I just like evolving language. You probably know that “Google” is a neologism and so is “Twitter”……

I Love You Micons!
