    We should get Paddy Cosgrave to write a piece for this place. And give someone like leo varadkar right of reply.
    would be mighty craic!

      he likes to blame the government and RDS for everything. last year they got the WI FI service they paid for from the RDS. He just didn’t want to take the blame so started throwing blame around at all his suppliers. If he wanted to provide better WI FI he could have planned and paid for it last year.

      Also the Govts fault that hotel rooms were more expensive at a time of high-demand.

      Fortunately, Paddy has received assurances that the laws of supply & demand have been suspended in Lisbon for the duration of the Web Summit.

        He is a bit of a moany git but he did make some fair points.

        The hotels do take the p!ss. We bend over backwards coming up with govt initiative to attract tourists & large swathes of the tourism ‘industry’ gouge visitors for a poor service.

    Well Lison is a European Capital, and dublin is a corrupt backwater, so there really is not much new here..

    At the end of the day is the internet really so great that it’s worth the finite-but-uncountable smugness of the people who make it their business?

    Looks like the barista put a dried bird poo in your coffee. Web Summit, prices starting at €3000 per ticket, please note that does not give you access to the “VIP Networking Lounge”, you would need a €4245 ticket for that! What are the chances Lisbon will pass for next year and other cities will be falling over themselves to get it.
