Things are warming up on the media coverage of tomorrow’s Blogging Conference in Dublin. Cian and I had a fairly vigorous discussion on the Tubridy Show this morning. The discussion is the last item on the RTE site, or you can listen to the rough cut mp3 file. Don’t forget to book your place! Installment two is in about 20 minutes on Newstalk, featuring Guido and Cian.
