Last pieces of broadcasting jigsaw put into place

House of the Oireachtas image, via their siteFollowing the appointments made in October by the Minister for Communications to the Board of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, and the appointments made by the Minister in November to the BAI’s Contract Awards Committee and Compliance Committee, the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Energy and Natural Resources has now made its appointments to the Board. Joining Bob Collins (Chair), Paula Downey, Michelle McShortall, Dr. Maria Moloney, and John Waters are Mr Larry Bass, Mr Michael Moriarty, Professor Colum Kenny and Ms Siobhán Ní Ghadhra.

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
