  • @mofoghlu Great points Mícheál - I just used the CSETs as an example of an initiative to further Irish research but of course there are lots more great centres, many bigger and better than the original CSETs - and TSSG is a great example. Tell me, do you know if there are any student-led spinouts from TSSG or is it mainly staff?

  • Excellent presentation. I touched the timeline at various points, as an early user of your VAX/VMS user mapping system in Galway.

    Don't forget there's a lot more R&D spending in Ireland than just SFI CSETs. The TSSG in WIT has 120 researchers in software services, funded by EU funding, Enterprise Ireland Funding and other types of SFI funding. http://www.tssg.org

    It has an ecosystem of spinouts, including the one where I work now as CTO, FeedHenry http://www.feedhenry.com

    But this just adds additional information around your core message that is very valid.

    Also like the refreshing style of hand drawn slides. I have heard it commented that modern ICT has re-enabled the hand written manuscript (MS). Take for example how easy it is for us all to download the iPad app with the full content of the Book of Kells, or look at the Archimedes Palimpsest project (http://www.archimedespalimpsest.org/). Previously you would have to gain access to an expensive reproduction, or limited access to the original for research purposes. This also applies to comics. The the whole history of human writing is now open to our digital consumption, allowing mass consumption of hand crafted originals. This is a heady combination of creativity and dissemination.

  • @bodonovan I had not Brian but I have to get it now - thanks!!

    I had done some hand drawn ones four years ago - http://www.slideshare.net/Cloud/the-social-semantic-web-presentation and http://www.slideshare.net/Cloud/dataportabilityorg-web-standards-sioc-and-foaf - but these are my first hand drawn ones in a while...
