Complementary media

In today’s Irish Examiner’s Ronan Mullen has spotted Slugger friend Sheila’s blog and, in particular, a great post on the changing face of Dublin, and Ireland – Road Works Ahead – from where he goes on to discuss Rip Off Ireland. There’s a slight breach of etiquette however – he neglects to provide a link to the post, or blog, he’s referring to. Ah well, at least it’s an acknowledgement that blogs and the wider media can complement each other and refer back to each other, as Sheila does today – with a link. And the uncool bar he avoids naming? The Ice Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
