De blogging

Things have been quiet around these parts of late. I moved to Dublin, started working for Storyful, and have been kept very busy over at thestory.ie doing FOIs. Do readers want me to cross post everything from thestory.ie to here?

  1. I already follow TheStory, and I suspect most of your readers here do too. Keep them separate, keep gavinsblog for the personal, for the things that don’t fit in TheStory or Storyful.

    I agree with Gerard

  3. A punter says:

    We followed you to thestory already. no need to crosspost.

    I’m in agreement with the others. Keep this site separate. I’m probably not alone in following via RSS feeds, so cross-posting just means duplicate items in my reader.

  5. How do all and compliments to Gavin on thestory.ie. Rather than annoy Gavin would any of Gavin’s posters here know what the costs are in FOI requests?

    We’ve been piling into a Quango Hammer thread and have a couple of people doing a wiki as well but one particular quango was heartestoppingly wasteful on a major social issue. The Residential Institutions Redress Board has been burning through millions of euros in the most extraordinary fashion and has generated a bit of heat so one or two people have asked me how do they go about FOI’s. I thought of thestory.ie and went there to see if there was a guideline note but may not be seeing it.

    I bet Gavin gets that kind of question all the time so sorry if I’m being a putz…

    anyone got a decent link or note available on FOIs?

    cross posting isn’t necessary.

    Hi,

    I thought you might be interested in covering a fiscal treaty debate we’re holding in Temple Bar on Monday, the New Theatre 1pm. It might be in the interest of some of your members to attend. the panel of speakers include local TD and Minister for European Affairs Lucinda Creighton, Clare Daly TD and many others. The debate will be chaired by Irish Times Journalist Suzanne Lynch. It will run from 1-2pm sharp in the New Theatre, I really hope you can take the time out to attend this important debate.
