What a hectic few weeks of summer I’ve had, here is the run down.  After the exams in July we (@ Eco Appz) released the app Eco-Bulbz on the Android Market, it was long awaited and Cathal at Apperrific did a great job.

This was followed by the launch evening or Big Bang event at Website Extraordinaire which I attended at the Athy Community Enterprise Centre.  It was a great night; this web design business which is owned by Beatrice Whelan was launched by Joan Mulvihill, CEO of the Irish Internet Association.  It was a while since I had made any clocks – but I had made one as a gift for Beatrice. I had a chance to catch up with old friends who attended on the evening.  For pictures follow this link.

The title of this one of a kind time piece is Extraordinary Time.


Following this I attended the KLCK Bloggers Network which is held on Mondays and I normally miss it due to being in College late on a Monday.  The presentation on the night was given by Tommy Collison of the Blog “Trust Tommy”. Though the topic was from the point of view of Youth Blogging, I enjoyed Tommy’s insights into blogging and how it is influencing his career choice, opened doors for him and has lead him to an Internship at the Sunday Business Post. He was working alongside some helpful Journalists, for more information see his blog post on the subject.  Tommy mentioned that the divide in news is being blurred and bloggers are now on a similar footing to journalists.

Tommy was right as the next day I attended a press event at IKEA, I was the only one who attended that was not working in mainstream journalism – but as a blogger.  Another post will follow on the day I spent at IKEA.

I’m looking forward to the next event hosted by KLCK, once I’m not in college on the evening.

Eco Appz was shortlisted for an award at the Irish Internet Association Dot ie Net Visionary Awards, the category is for Rookies and the competition is tough.  The Rookie category is being sponsored by Accreate and the Rookies are their guests on the night, I must say I’m really looking forward to it.  I haven’t been to an awards ceremony since the RECI Contractor of the Year back in March 2008, when we (Pedreschi Electrical & Alarms Ltd) took the prize for Contractor of the Year Dublin Region.
