Irish Web 2.0 News – Is there any?
Thanks Fergus for inviting me to contribute to the site. In my mind this site has two goals – to promote web 2.0 companies in Ireland, and for the moment, to highlight the stark lack of them! Michael Arrington’s Techcrunch web 2.0 blog in the US has more posts daily than I can read, and while I don’t expect Ireland to create as many web 2.0 companies as our cross-shore technorati, the current lack of grassroots innovation does not bode well for the future of a country that is the second largest exporter of software in the world.
To that end, I’d like to see some drive from Enterprise Ireland and the National Universities to foster and support more web-based entrepreneurs.
