What Tom doesn’t realise is that had I known that Donncha had any fame to leech off of I’d be opening one of his arteries right now and drinking my fill while typing this with the other hand. (Donncha will attest to this fact). Henceforth Tom will now be refereed to as “King Pod” intergalactic ruler of Web 2.0, but he’ll only be referred to as such in an ironic way. […]
