Like every other sane person on the planet, I am appalled at the carnage in Paris. It is almost beyond words that some human beings could be so brutal and vicious in praise of their God and religion, but it happens.
How does it happen? What is it meant to achieve?
If you were put in a cell measuring three feet by six feet, you’d have a cause for complaint with Amnesty International, but that’s just about all the space you’ll get as a ‘free’ exhibitor at the Web Summit. And when I say ‘free’, I obviously don’t mean it.
No, ‘free’ in this context runs anywhere from €1,900 to €2,500 – possibly more, but that was all the research I managed to get done today. For that, you get a hard-backed poster with your name and brand on it, and the afore-mentioned space. Except, that’s public space, so if someone decides to stand in it blocking anyone from coming near you, well, we’re developing and app for that.
I already have my
million billion-dollar idea which I picked up at the Web Summit today.
It’s sad to think that despite whatever I have achieved in my life to-date, from now on I’ll be know as ‘that guy who invented ‘WHAPANERD’ (c), and my deep meditations on life, my kindness to animals, and my general good humour will be forgotten in light of that massive world-wide success.
The Web Summit takes place this week in Dublin, possibly for the last time, and definitely for the immediate future. I’m going to be attending with the E-Skoot team, and will blog about anything that seems interesting to me, and hopefully it will be to you too.
So I wanted to give a little warning that you may get a few emails this week, and what those emails might be about.
If you want me to look at something, someone in particular, let me know.
