Dolly Mixture 15.06.10 – THEATREClub, People of the Year & good Cork grub

Fire Guy

So yeah, my love affair with THEATREClub continues so much so I wish to inform the good people of Cork of the arrival of THEATRECLUB STOLE YOUR CLOCK RADIO WHAT THE F*CK YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT this weekend at the Cork Arts Centre at 2pm on Saturday on Sunday as part of a double-bill for the Midsummer Festival.

ALSO – they’re looking for people to work with them including lighting and stage people, actors etc. Check the spec here.

Today is the last day to nominate someone for a People of the Year award. Yes it is an X Comms website but being so I get to read about the superb work that some extraordinary people are doing every day of their lives and it’s great to see them get some recognition for it. If you know someone why not nominate them?

I was in Cork at the weekend volunteering for the first leg of the annual SPWC and once again I had to be dragged kicking and screaming from the city after being exposed to some amazing food. And that was even *before* I got to Café Gusto on Washington Street. Thanks Sabrina & John for the introduction and the smashing vino (nice one Café Gusto on the BYO option).

New to WordPress development? Now is a great time to be getting to grips with it with version 3.0 in the pipe and set to bring WordPress from a blog-engine-cum-CMS to a proper CMS option. Yoast is doing a nifty series of posts on using WordPress as a CMS that’s worth a look.

Ogilvy PR Worldwide are looking for a junior web dev. Info is here.

Dolly Mix 23.02.10 – WordCamp, IE6 Funeral and Interface Wins!


WordCamp Ireland is less than 2 weeks away and almost full – grab a ticket here for a fun-packed WordPressy weekend in Kilkenny.

IE6 Funeral takes place on March 4th. Sadly there won’t be any such event here just yet thanks to Ireland’s dial-up districts. A snapshot of browser stats from X Comms’ busiest sites show 14% still using IE6 compared to 23% on IE7 and 28% on IE8.

Congrats to Kev on his nabbing 2nd place at Interaction ’10 in Savannah with his future mobile interfaces project.

Oxegen headliners announced via @oxegenofficial earlier – Jay Z, Eminem, Black Eyed Peas, Kasabian The Prodigy, Florence and The Machine Paolo Nutini, Faithless, Stereophonic, David Guetta, Vampire Weekend, Hot Chip, Calvin Harris, The Temper Trap… – no major surprises.
