I started blogging here back in 2002 because it allowed me to get my opinions, thoughts and views to an audience without much expense.

I have worked at many things, including the whole writing jazz and in startups. I’ve have been published in such titles as the Irish Examiner, the New Statesman the Sunday Business Post, The Sunday Times, Village, the Irish Times and the Independent/Sunday Independent.

I drink Murphy’s, Beamish or Bulmers, depending on the weather.

This is my collection of books. (I will read them all some day)

I am known in the blogosphere partly for:
An initial distrust of Google (2003)
Being threatened with legal action by author John Gray (2004).
Appearing on Irish television to talk about blogging (2005)
A Chronology of Bertie Ahern’s resignation (2008)
Visiting Georgia after the war (2008)

  1. Gavin,

    I have 4 questions for you:

    I would like to ask if you like skiing? Do you have an Irish twin? This year for St. Patrick’s Day should I be Tommy O’Vandenbosche, or Tommy McVandenbosche? How about a Murphys?
