One thought on “Multimedia Innovation Network launch”

  1. Sorry for my initial take on this announcement but I would like to know where in the social media space, pray tell, are the UCC promoters?

    And will the launch announce a distinct social networking presence on any of the nodes commonly used by the masses using innovative multimedia technologies (e.g. Facebook, weblog, Flickr, Vox, YouTube, Jaiku, del.icio.us)?

    If not, this is network launch is pure fluff at best or a fiefdom designed to pour Enterprise Ireland money into existing infrastructure at worst.
