Alcatraz Flowers

The entrance to Alcatraz Prison is up a series of steps near these flowers. I love how they catch the light while the background is in the shade of the prison.

After yesterday’s flood of posts it’s nice to get back to the one-a-day habit although I wonder why Technorati hasn’t picked up on my IT@Cork2006 tag yet. Grrr.

It seems that they haven’t looked at my feed or updated their records of my posts yet because if you look under Canon 20d several of the posts I made yesterday show up. Not this one just yet. I guess there are lots of blogs out there!

Tony Kenny

Tony Kenny speaking at the 2006 it@cork National Technology & Business Conference. He’s the IT manager at Beaumont Hospital. His experiences with introducing Open Source software such as Linux and Star Office into the hospital make for a very interesting talk.

Tom Raftery blogged about his talk and while he’s right that no search competitors of Microsoft were mentioned, he did say that search isn’t very sticky. I’m sure he’s hoping that people will abandon Google and jump on board MS Live.
