Dublin Web Summit

Um I sorta thought I would take a bit of Action to publises Moi and BM. There was a conference to which I was invited. A few of the Big Boys were going to be keynoting. Chad Hurley, Jack Dorsey Nicklas Zennstrom, The Founders : Twitter, Skype and Youtube. I couldn’t go because I was broke I asked our local county enterprise board for 200 euros they said they were broke. (How they spent 3.3 million Euros in 24 hours beats me) So I thought I would go up and cause a bit of Mayhem. is their site I thought I would get their attention so I bought and then I regestered DublinWebSummit as a business name with the Companies Registration Office in Dublin. It appears I am DublinWebSummit. So I thought they would be a bit polite. I had my marketing manager with me Declan “Spoons” Walshin a top hat, me in my suit with my Brunel Tie and a big sign saying “Dublin Web Summit is Using 20th Century Technology, (It wasn’t like Our conference in onLand theirs was so yesterday. Brian Cowen (Our Irish PM) and my local TD, Brian Cowen is a BIFFO which is what they call people from Offaly : Big Ignorant Fuckers From Offaly and Offaly County Enterprise Board are Morons and Rules. Thats where I live in Offaly, its the largest and oldest recorded Peat Bog in Ireland. Records start at 200 AD. So of we went. Im not daft so on the way I reported to the local cop shop and told them I was doing a demo. We had a chat, nothing offensive Sir? Nope! Ok Its Your Right! Off we went! : My In my Bright Yellow Flourescent Garda Jacket with on the back and Declan in his top hat. (He plays the spoons Very Very well (been featured on Youtube (Declan Walsh Entertains 2000 hits)) Heres The Press Release:

I went in and asked if they could make an exception for a Poor Disabled Reporter (I have my own registered newspaper) who was a Microsoft Partner, Bizspark start up and over 60. And an Entrepreneur running 80 domains and that officially I was DublinWebSummit. They said No. Declan started playing the spoons and I started giving out 500 leaflets I had printed while doing a bit of a Jig :

Heres The Leaflet:

I had 300 of my business cards which me Helena and Patrick had spent hours writing on the back. So we started our Demo. Serendipitously RTÉ our National Television station were just Leaving and they fimed us. Ha! About 30 minutes later the cops turned up in a big van with blue lights flashing. They nodded to me and I waved and they marched inside to talk with the organisers. Ten minutes later they came out I asked if everything was ok? They said “Carry On Sir” and saluted. hehehehe. Oh the day before I got into more trouble!


at 8.30 am this morning I placed my business card measuring 8.5cms x 5cms with “Bog of Allen” written on it. I Placed the card in a Cars door sill so that it would not blow away and litter. I told the person in reception that I had Done This. She said ok and can I have one.  At 11.54 am I received a phone call purporting to be  from the council 05793 46800 (They Masked Their ID) that I am to be prosecuted AND Fined  for littering.  My Response : See You In Court. Come visit me in MountJoy as I Wiil not pay!  I spent months, mostly without pay authoring Their Web site (link here in the Internet Archive)  in March 2000 to April 2001 If You look at the source code

meta name=”Author”


philp finlay-bryan Typical BIFFO!

Response : I passed a skip grabbed suitable materials and made a big sign the text reads :Official Offaly County Council say is (in very very small letters)to Be FINE (in very very small letter)  D (in very very smal letters ) For Littering. I paraded up and down from 4.30pm to 6pm.


That night I thought Oh they will think Im a cybersquatter and I hate Cybersqutters so I thought I better put together a DublinWebSummit Business plan so I did a bit of the old cogitating and made this!

The next day I went back for the last session, dressed smart casual and asked nicely if I could stand at the back. The chap was less than polite. I tried to pick up a brochure and he screamed “CALL SECURITY” and a woman at the back picked up the phone and demanded Security. I left. Well I hung out for a bit had a few chats. One guy said he only found the place because someone had put my pic on Twitter.

Got Home! They had cut off my Internet because I hadn’t payed my bill. Oh Merde! And I had 20 euros to my name! I needed 248 euros because I was in arrears too. See? I told you I was poor, anyway buying a domain name is far more important than having an Internet connection!….Oh, oops, um something wrong with that sentence…. I did tell you I was mad….? Si i wandered into town and waited for a Prod From God. I looked cool, rich and I was wearing Sunglasses. Hello O2 my mobiles O2. Hmmm wi fi modem! Ok blah blah blah lalala “Well Philip we can do you a six month contract for 59 euros (I only had 20) a years contract for 29 euros (shit) 0r a free one with an 18 month contract. ” Ha! Sorted! Except theres a 15 gig a month limit. I’ve alredy used 4 gigs in 14 hours. 😦
Anyway I ended up making this My DublinWebSummit / Blue Mars Business Plan:

I got and the overview site is : or its on Youtube but my site is prettier and bigger


Of course if they had let me in I would have asked a question I sorta ask “questions” so I can give a speech……

Hi Everybody!Philipm from Bog Of Allen dot com (one day people will say “Hi Dr. Phil”) . Anyone got a camera phone, an Internet connection and a Youtube account? I have,  someone else film this please and put it on Youtube. Anyone got a Laptop a webcam and Skype? Ok we can stream this live over the net to at least 1 person. Ok. People say Twitter is inane people just talk about their pets and what they had for breakfast. Heres my Tweet. Oh Ladies? Could you write this down? I would ask a man to do it but it involves Thinking Writing and Listening and we all know men can’t multi task (And still get paid 40% more than you!) Anyway my Tweet:

My Cat Eats Toast Freud Loved Cats and Cocaine Merchant Bankers Rule on drug money BeKool dot net with a k #craic #crs

OK? My Cat (my pet) eats Toast,  Toast is really important. When the first black proto human (OMG we are descended from Blacks? Thats worse than being descended from monkeys) was on the African savannah and a lightening bolt set the place on fire he said “Great, Now I can make Toast!” Freud a buzz word – hey guys remember when you were a kid and you saw your mum in a bra and felt stirrings? Oh scary stuff. Freud loved cats he said “Time spent with Cats is never wasted. ” When he discovered Cocaine he thought he had found the answer to all humankinds problems (some people still do) until his best mate OD ed on the Stuff.  Merchant Bankers Rule on Drug Money who bailed out the banks to the tune of over 300 million dollars in cash? Coke dealers laundering their drug money. Be Kool dot net with a k advertises my web site. #craic in Irish,  a bit of craic, any craic means FUN! I spelt it for them in case there were coke users in the audience (crack cocaine) and finally #crs = cockney rhyming slang Merchant Bankers = Wankers.  Wankers Rule ! thanks Be Happy

Sham I never got to deliver it……oh OnlyOwls dot com is really Kool. I might not be around much bandwidth / bills stuff but Ill go busking with Declan earn a few bob… ty

I love making videos. Its so much fun. Here is Bitchy doing her stuff to the sound of Frankenstein. Making a video cheers me up no end. I love music, it keeps me going. New Stuff, Old Stuff. Edgar Winter was 63 this year;

This Tune was last performed by Edgar Winter in Syracuse NYC in 2010.

Flat Fact :

Edgar Holland Winter (born December 28, 1947), is an American musician. Edgar is a multi-instrumentalist, performing on the keyboards, and as a vocalist, saxophonist and percussionist, well-versed in jazz, blues and rock. He was most successful in the 1970s with his band, The Edgar Winter Group. He is easily recognized by his albinism.

Hi everybody,

Well it’s Thursday. That day of the week when TechnologyGuardian comes out.

technologyGuardian 30/07/09

technologyGuardian 30/07/09

It’s a must read but I guess not EVERYBODY (who is ANYBODY) can get hold of a copy.

We in Tullamore get at least three copies from the-only-newsagent-in-town-that-has-it.

I got mine so I will share (it cost €1 so any contributions will be gratefully accepted)

REM : Set up a donations page on Irish Secure
HeadLine : “When the chips are down”

This is all about fabs – chip fabrication plants, and their cost. Moore’s Law is quoted (please look it up) but the cost of designing a new chip is estimated as $50m , mostly for software (?) and this economic fact may prohibit the production and research of a new chip.

  • 18nm > the expected size of chip circuits in 2014 [it was 3,000nm in 1982] nanometer = billionths of a meter.

Global Foundries, a spin-off of AMD, who is building a new $4.2bn plant in Saratoga County, New York. (thanks to help from New York state who contributed $1.2bn). The plant is due in operation in 2012 and is expected to generate 1,400 jobs, a welcome boost in these economic downturns. BTW the goverment of Abu Dhabi is investing $6bn over the next two years in FAB2. Ha! a FAB2 already.

But from the gloom comes Rock’s Law – the cost of a chip fabrication plant doubles every four years. Rubbish says Philip Ross IEEE. (Just love acronyms doncha know. Remember TWAIN for scanners “Technology Without An Interesting Name” lol). Sorry. The article concludes “Kurzweil…reckons that the next stage is that chips will be built in 3 dimensions”

Got It? Well a bit over my head I must admit. But it’s good about job creation and if your know-it-all-friend starts talking about fabs just toss in “mumble…Abu Dhabi…cough….$6bn….then loudly: FAB2!

“For the first time in its 34 years, Microsoft has seen revenues dip. Is this a sign of the times or a symptom of decline?” Aaaahh Le pouvre Microsoft. and ” Microsoft is loved; it is hated; but above all Microsoft is big” blah….infatuation with search engines / capitulated in arguments with EU / download other web browsers…. stuff. But the fact is Microsoft got smaller. see graph.

Microsoft FY09Q4 Results

“This is it. The wrap up of FY09, coming fresh to us Thursday July 23rd.
I’ll put this up a bit early in case there are any initial questions, thoughts, or insights regarding how FY09 is closing.” [and]

Cool. Back to the topic Mini-Microsoft commenters – despite MS $60bn revenues 2009- ” …there is a serious psychological impact to suddenly being on the back foot after so many years of having the Midas touch”. So they are not happy bunnies. Finally: things will bounce back…Microsoft’s size may prove to be its biggest strength rather than a weekness. So, don’t lose any sleep worrying where Bill’s next cup of cofee is coming from.

    Opinion : Virtual Worlds are getting a second life

    NOT VRML (that was last week) but stuff like:

  • World of Warcraft
  • Entropia Universe
  • Habbo Hotel
  • Club Penguin ….and others

  • Snippets : Virtual worlds growth up 39% / estimated $579m / subscriptions / micropayments / 5 to 10 year olds – 76 million registered users / 10 to 15 year olds – 251 million / tails off 15 to 25 year olds only (!) 35 million


    So…Watch out for Twinity ~ ha! shall I join? BETA ~ it’s free, just raised €4.5m;, testing..”Blue Mars is a free to play massively multiplayer virtual world featuring stunning graphics, realistic characters, and endless social bonding activities. ” again BETA / Free bit spoiled for choice I am : Will Test and report..

    To sum up : ” ….a whole generation growing up for whom having an avatar is second nature, virtual worlds have nowhere to go but up. Only they won’t be virtual worlds – just a part of normal life.”

    Photo : Robert Nickelsberg/Getty

    In the past 5 years there were more than 23,000 verified gang crimes in LA > 12,000 felony assaults > approx 10,000 robberies and just under 500 rapes…:(((



    Related: ” …the US Southern Command…. is running operations against drugs and narcoterrorism”

    Analysing data from WoW, Dr Neil Johnson with Palo Alto Research Center + University of CA, says ” We studied these online gangs at the same time I was looking at the offline gangs and it turned out the model we were developing to explain the behaviour of the online guilds began to coincide with the offline gangs”

    Disengenuous? Where do you think WoW got their model from? Thin air? ….?

    But questions arose > Is the largest group the most successful? > Is it stable? > Is it hard to join? > How long do people remain members? >>> “Essentially you are looking at the ecology of groups”

    Mentions : Swine Flu, spread of ideas like the spread of a virus, what would happen if? groups, group dynamics, gang mentality, (sorry for throwing words and concepts at you), C++, fission-fusion, non-linear cluster equations, and…paper and pencil…

    Concludes : “That’s why you will never get rid of gangs – we’re all in gangs”

      This month zitty Readers Lounge brings some unexpected moments: This Thursday, 30 July 2009 Alexa Hennig von Lange will be reading live from her latest novel “Peace”, describing the situation of protagonist Joshua, who (to say the least) was raised in a very odd family. His mother chose a rather alternative career model (hippie groupie, ultra lesbian, goa dropout, TV addict & pacifist), his father – or at least the guy he thought of to be his father – got himself a secret second family and a block of shares. On top his mom’s LSD pusher suddenly claims to be his true genitor…
      This is just the basic situation from which Alexa Hennig von Langes’ new novel develops a story line which is packed with wit and tempo – and which shows us the partially absurd debates that influenced our role view over some decades. and……

    • Do Not Wait for the Stupid Video I am going to Put Up. Get Downloading

    Ever got a 404? The web page you requested cannot be found? etc etc? I was in Grid Rock clicking on links to links to links and ended up with a 404: Here it is. I could not leave the page, well it would have been rude…

    btw I have a Flash Website at Http:// if you wanna see… but its a bit old. Heres one I made in 1998, thats really old

    This is a personal comment and in no way represents the views of VSE or Blue Mars.

    Please keep in mind that although we all have found something very exciting we all have work to do:

    • Virtual Reality will become RVR eventually. In perspective we have miles to go before we sleep
    • I was on Second Life last night with 65k others, there had been 1.6 million on line that month. We have untold other virtual reality sites, Kaneva, Red Light Center, World of Warcraft etc etc. All told 30,000,000? Amazing.
    • It has been estimated that there are 1,733,993,741 users on the internet
    • We have blogs. We list about 20? Making progress, growing every day. Updating them every few days, once a week?
    • June 2009 comment “217,012,482 – but that was the count 40 seconds ago. So now…? Don’t know. My speed counter is slow.”
    • Video’s! The above Video has been viewed 22, 000 times. This one: Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole ‘IZ’ ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ has been viewed 8 million times
    • Web pages , oh, shall I cut to the chase? We have a good few. Sorry. It was estimated that there are 29.1 billion web pages on the Internet

    So my wonderful Dudes and Dudettes, We have work to do. Spread the word, Add some one new everyday. Be Exponential, Train others in the stuff you know, tell them to train others. Need a dot com ask me : It cost $15 for a year. Hosting $7 a month. Need a hand? Need a blog? Need setting up? If you are from or part of or interested in Blue Mars its $50 for a professional six month support option with me. Includes Flash want an On Line shop? $15 a month. Ready in a week. After 3 months of practice You copy the above. Make $50 for yourself. Ok? No? Ok : Just pinch my idea. BUT I have got it right. Don’t offer a crap service for a quick buck. You’ll die in shame. Ok. I just wanted to get that off my chest. Ty. Luvya. Namaste. pjfbncyl aka Dude Starship. [I have a secret identity in Blue Mars. First one to find me and say “Hiya Dude Starship” gets the above for free. ] And to jog your memory:
