Two things I have learnt about the Irish

1) They seem to love politics, and 2) throw great parties

TechLudd this week exhibited the best of the latter and the worst of the former.

Whether or not you think it’s fair to veto events that others are working hard to put on, far more impressive was the bar brawl that followed, weeks before the thing had even taken place.

And – in a brilliant piece of politik and self-promotion – the critics manage to take credit for the changes that were made to result in the resounding success.

So I am about to slag off next week’s MobileMonday. I think I can then take credit for it being a great event.

(Which is my way of saying “see you there”…)
