Back home after a two-day flying visit to the #websummit in Dublin.

@destraynor Many thanks for your superb presentation earlier. Next time I present data I’ll be mindful of your tips.

@barryf sounds good! Just offsite for a coffee chat now so maybe this afternoon? How about 3:45 beside the Irish Times stand?

@JohnCStaunton Great. Will see you then.

@barryf @cronkshaw Thursday would be best - although we're at stand L599 all day Wednesday

@JohnCStaunton Sorry I didn’t catch up with you yesterday. If you’re around today let me know a good time.

Temple Bar pubs and Spotify party done. Lovely to bump into @FrancescaHeath. Woke up 20 hours ago back home so definitely time for sleep.

@timblair @thesambarnes thanks for the feedback chaps. I'll be sure you to send you a picture. @andrewgarner will be delighted.

Good to hear @garyvee stress the importance of understanding your LTV and retention #websummit

@JohnCStaunton @cronkshaw OK. I’ll drop by tomorrow or try for Thursday if not. Looking forward to it :)

@JohnCStaunton @cronkshaw Sounds good, John. Perhaps we could meet up during one of the breaks or at lunch?

Flying to Dublin tomorrow morning for two days at #WebSummit 2013. See you there if you’re one of the 10k going.

@barryf it worked! Thanks for the mention and great work on #baker!

@BarnabyWalters Thanks! It’s been a fun side project over the summer, but work commitments have stopped me getting involved with the community recently. Hope to change that. The smart stuff is the documentation and ideas you guys have put together. Really clicked with me.

@barryf Isn't visual voice mail essentially a text message?

@grayhaze Not quite. There are Android apps that implement it too: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_voicemail

@barryf early R8s are a steal at present ;)

@rosswilliams Not quite enough of a steal, sadly! And not enough seats for future needs.

I’ve added a page explaining how to comment on posts on my site with IndieWeb comments.

There’s now a new help link under each post. Next step is to support in-context posting from compatible sites, but that can probably wait for a higher volume of comments.

@barryf we were lusting over a 4 Series on show at Ascot today. You not tempted to switch allegiance?

@andrewgarner Nice. I didn’t realise the 4 was out yet - thanks. I should go see it for comparison.

You know what's NOT great at the Arsenal these days? Half time beer. If you agree, go to the @AISA_Arsenal meeting with Delaware tonight.

@JamesLafferty Great options. And I absolutely love Flamini. We’ve missed him so much!

Superb. A goal and an assist for Özil, both from down our right. Theo might not go straight back into this team. #afc
