ONE OF THE LAST THINGS I did in the Podcamp Ireland venue involved pulling together a few snippets for my weekly Qik take on technology after reading the Sunday newspapers in Ireland. The noise in the background comes from my 12-month-old researcher who is learning how to read. The Qik video [19 MB 3GP file] starts in the Style magazine from The Sunday Times with a Dolce & Gabbana look that always reminds me of John McWilliams and it finishes before I get an opportunity to cover items from the Sunday Business Post. Tif Hunter snaps some of the best roadsters ever to take the pavement.  Mark Tighe points out that the helicopter "crash hero" was flying passengers without a requisite commercial license.  A lot of Irish investors are feeling a credit crunch now that their real estate investments look to contain negative equity.  RTE presenter George Lee travels on a Segway, occasionally to work.  Colin Coyle plays with economic sensitivities in his poking at university heads who engage in professional training.  Sarah O'Sullivan rewarms the evidence that Ireland is underfunding its ICT at second level.  Damien Mulley argues against postal codes in Ireland--or does he?  Paul Anthony McDermott believes "using Facebook is like throwing the curtains open on your social life."  John Murphy thinks the G1 phone could shake up the market and he cites better battery life than the iPhone and the integrated Google Maps tracking feature on the phone as some features worth mentioning.  There are interesting ways to integrate better IT into health care and some wireless technologies deserve careful consideration.
