the Irish for rights

Recent Developments in Media Law and Regulation

TCD crest, via TCD Law School website.The School of Law, Trinity College Dublin, will host a conference on the above theme on Thursday, 17 January 2008 next. Full details here. This conference offers an excellent opportunity for legal practitioners, journalists, editors and anyone with an interest in the Irish media to keep up to date with the many significant developments that have occurred in the last 12 months. Many of the questions to be discussed on the day have already featured on this blog, and the speakers will include my colleagues Dr Eoin Carolan and Dr Neville Cox, Prof John Horgan (the recently-appointed Press Ombudsman), solicitors Karyn Harty and Paula Mullooly, and barrister Luá¡n Ó Braonáin SC.

    Eoin, thanks for posting this.

    You’re welcome, Ronan. I sometimes wonder if there’s anyone out there, paying any attention to my mad scribblings on this blog, so this kind of response is very gratifying.

    And now that you know about the conference, since it makes money for the Law School (which should, in theory, have some benefits for me), register at once and pay immediately (if you go, that’s all the better for you, but I’m sure the Law School is happy once you’ve paid!). But seriously, if you attend, I hope to see you there.

    I announced this conference twice this week. Once at a government advisory board called the IAB – Internet Advisory Board, which is under the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform and the other at a plenary session elsewhere ;).

    I think your ‘scribblings’ are not in-fact mad, but food for thought.

    Have already written to Catherine and requested a couple of things, including my registration.

    In general terms, I think you should find a good website hit or reader counter. I know about five people who are reading your blog on a daily basis.

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
