SHORTLY AFTER A local entrepreneur visited the Tipperary Institute Skunkworks with an idea, Irish blogger Piaras Kelly affirmed the entrepreneur's idea--without hearing the concept first hand. Kelly wrote about how blogs and podcasts can be most useful and in his essay he suggested tactics that the entrepreneur will use during the months ahead. For all the moaning about the ultimate utility of blogging, I believe every daily reading of my information aggregate reveals something worth actioning in the real world. That information aggregate comes from a stream of bloggers often writing about things I don't understand. From practise, I have learned to listen to those I don't comprehend when those people sit in places I respect. Without ever exchanging business cards, I have come to know very informed people. They have informed my judgment and that means local entrepreneurs who come looking to improve an idea will have the benefit of hundreds of minds who generously share of their expertise.
