Unfortunately I missed the keynote speech at the opening of the Irish Web Technology Conference given by Fergus Burns of Nooked. Luckily the PPT is now available on Slideshare.
Quite simply, what he said.
A much needed wake-up call.
I hope to see lots more like this over the next few days at IWTC. It’s not too late to get a ticket.
Update: Video of talk available – Thanks to Martha
