The next great Cork Blogger's dinner

The plates are hardly dry from last night’s great blogger’s dinner and we have another spectacular one planned.

The date is November 28th, time and venue are yet to be decided – mark it in your calendars now!

November 28th is the eve of it@cork’s 2006 Business and Technology conference, so I made sure to invite the speakers who blog to the bloggers dinner, when I was asking them to speak at the conference.

The list of bloggers who have agreed to come to the dinner is impressive:
Hugh MacLeod
Marc Canter
Salim Ismail and
Jeff Nolan

I’m sure we can convince Hugh to bring some of that Stormhoek wine he is always raving about!
Now, I wonder if we can find somebody to sponsor the food as well…

If you plan to come to the dinner, or are interested in sponsoring the event, leave your name in the comments of this post (or send me an email – tom@tomrafteryit.net).

Hugh's two laws

Hugh MacLeod has posted one of the best blog posts in a long time – it is titled “the two immutable laws of blogging

The laws are great because of their brevity and accuracy:

The Two Immutable Laws of Blogging:

1. “Nobody’s going to read your blog unless there’s something in it for them.” –Seth Godin.
2. “Nobody’s going to link your blog unless there’s something in it for them.” -Hugh MacLeod

Any questions?
