the Irish for rights

Pensive mood

As I’ve said before on this blog, Being Five is one of my favourite fun blogs. Here’s a recent cartoon strip called Pensive:

Georgie being Pensive, but interrupted by Cookies

Being Five is a comic strip about a kid named Georgie who blogs using voice recognition software (since he can’t read or write yet).

In the first panel, he says: “People are getting to know me by reading my blog! They’re realising that I’m a very deep, pensive, philosophical, insightful little fella!” (Just like I hope readers of this blog regard me).

In the second panel, Georgie is startled by a voice (presumably his mother’s, from downstairs) calling “Georgie, I baked cookies”.

In the third panel, Georgie repsonds manically: “COOKIES!” (At this point, I deny all similarities).

    Can’t resist cookies when you’re a 5 year old… even adults too! :D

    Love it. And…any similarity to me is purely coincidental.

    Hey, I keep having this idea of a restitution blog. Would you be interested in contributing? Am thinking of e-mailing the RDG about it.

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
