JOHN COLLINS has singlehandedly made The Irish Times an essential Friday purchase for his coverage in "Business This Week" and today he delivers the same high-quality round-up of business and technology that earned him plaudits as an outstanding technology journalist in several industry events. His analysis of Facebook's unfortunate stumbling with online privacy is a story that has legs.  I will be curious to see where he takes his thoughts on Irish venture capital when he visits Silicon Valley next week. The Irish Venture Capital Association thinks ireland has the potential to become a venture capital hub  but those involved in small Web 2.0 start-ups believe that kind of scenario is far from reality.
I'm not sure if John Collins gathers the tidbits called "InShort" but I think at least one of them every week provides me room for experimentation. This week, it's mention of Zinadoo's mobile sites.  I need to play around with dot mobi site structures and the mobile version of XHTML for my main sites. Also, Dopplr has unveiled its mobile site and that probably deserves an inch of Irish Times coverage soon.
