Ominom (Happy Birthday Flann O’ Brien)

Happy 100th Birthday to Brian Ó Nualláin (aka Flann O’ Brien, Myles na gCopaleen et al), wherever his Omnium may be.

I’m breaking my internet silence, to say that and say “look at this”. Needless to say I’m a fan of the works of Flann and I got this idea in my head yesterday to take an image from my head and put it on the page. Here’s what I had in mind…

[sorry about the photo quality.. i am minus camera] 

 

I will add to it some more in variations, but I got it into my head to run into town today and print up some t-shirts of such to flog to other fans of Flann who might be milling about in various Dublin watering holes. The thing is, I’m a ‘Poor Nerd’ and haven’t got the money to print said t-shirts in the first place. Beside, it was a map-cap plan which would involve me shouting and roaring on the streets “Get your Omnnium On… on ….t-shirts!”, which isn’t really me at all. But something may come of it yet…

On Standby

The front doors have been closed on itison.net and itison.tv for about a month now. I will explain what’s being going on, soon here.

   

Multistory

This blog doesn’t get much use unfortunately. I’ve been busy juggling a few different projects and plans are coming together for these webspaces itison.tv (the channel) & itison.net (the network). Basically, it is all about collaborative curated media. I will explain more in detail when I put some shape back onto these sites and make them easy to navigate again.

In the meantime, aside from the web projects themselves I’ve been looking at the issue of the upcoming census in Ireland and it’s association with CACI  who are accused of torture in the notorious Abu Gharaib prison in Iraq. They also are involved in the Scottish census while Lockheed Martin have a starring role in the census for the rest of the UK.I launched multistory.itison.net a few days ago to compile and curate some of the information out there regarding this. Here in Ireland there has not been adequate media coverage of this and the general public are not by enlarge aware of this issue.

The details are in the first stories on the site now. Tune in. Check it out.
