ROBERT SCOBLE was caught looking down on me during a lecture in Tipperary Institute. The PR class in which Scoble appeared as a ghost lecturer examined the growing impact of podcasts, hand-rolled videos and weblogs. In our classroom, students who listened to a rapid-fire delivery of Channel 9 Videos, Scobleizer musings and developer podcasts concluded that Scoble's technology evangelism leads the pack in connecting people to the human side of Microsoft corporation.
WE VISIT BUTLER GALLERY routinely with busloads of third level students from Tipperary Institute and this month it's to see the journals of Tony O'Malley. His work is all over Ireland at the moment. Besides being on display in the Butler, a major retrospecitve hangs in the Irish Museum of Modern Art--his third exhibition there in just over a decade. HE hangs in Dublin's Graphic Studio Gallery until 12 November and Taylor Galleries hosts an exhibition of gouaches, works on paper and oil paintings from 11 November.
