Irish sites and blogs have "My Brain Fried!"

Ok, so I read and subscribe to some of the Irish blogs and visit the web sites now and again.

So I decided (as part of latest quest) to go check them all out. I "think" I've visited nearly any blog or web site connected with startups, funding, technology etc...
and my brain is fried!

I'll left several comments on some blogs and been corresponding with a few people via email/Skype. Some of the sites had 'commenting' issues and a few required subscription (duh!)

For those that subscribe to "Irish have the gift of the gab" there were a few sites that just went on and on and on... (as in they've been blogging 4 quite awhile and write frequently) e.g. Damien, Donncha and Pat ...

Noticed also that several (mostly woman?) don't indicate their name and prefer to live behind their 'blog handle'. Most annoying as takes some time 2 track down (even if its just for my bookmarks - which by the way need a complete overhaul at this stage)

I also have a habit of going back thru all the blog entries so can be time consuming but often find some interested tidbits especially regd. previous work etc..

So here are a list of the comments I've dropped (well most of them):
+ most of his other posts

I'll be writing the 'current state of affairs' or something like that in coming days (after I get some zzzz...)

Thanks for the link! Was the brain fry worth it? You seem to have been busy getting a taste of the Irish blogosphere and I'm very impressed.
I've never even visited a lot of the blogs you've listed in your post. Yikes!

Seriously, when I seen 5/6 comments by the same person I thought it was spam.

Glad its not, you've been very busy.

Donncha - I was surprised once u start following links what u can find on the IRL scene. Now I found a lot of non technology stuff which I quickly browsed over as well.
Your photos I'll have 2 come back again.

John - the verifier aspect was ok on your side. No issues as he hadn't seen me b4. Your postings are a little more meaty and need some chewing but Thankfully nothing like Chris Horns! (he does good stuff but u need 2b prepared 4 some heavy reading)

and not Mary Gilmartin (

Not sure.

I had an issues with some IRL blog site and the topic was relating to Business Plan and ?'s
IIcan't find now what site it was but here was my reply (that I had failed 2 leave)...

a Business plan does make sense but its not held the high esteem it once was.

It can actually become a good exercise in seeing the big picture and getting some sense on reality as opposed 2 "wow -what I got is sooo cool"

However I won't start any BP until u've spent time going over the 'idea', taking with peers, getting 'blog' input etc... and also some advice from non-techie's (i.e. those outside your coolness arena).
Aka - don't drink your own cool-aid 2 much!

I've some links I must post that can give some guidance.

This is being debated, in more general terms, at the moment on Damien's blog. I don't think that the virtual streetwise behaviour practiced by many sensible women on the Net should be taken as a problem.
A blog handle is a useful persona, not a full expression of identity. Women are used to role playing and enjoy posting on the net. The gender issues that arise from time to time are quickly dealt with.
Everybody, regardless of gender, learns how to ignore silly comments on the Web.

Thanks for the great blog list. Shall look forward to some serious reading.

Hiding behind a blog handle is useful for either (any?) sex. The Kathy Sierra situation highlights why is can be useful.

Even I don't put my full name on the blog (which is disturbing when refer logs show that a search on your name points to the blog...)
