Open Coffee Club Typelist

Barry Doyle writes, its pretty easy to make a list using typepads typelist function. I have created a list of Open Coffee clubs in Ireland (South & North). This was a relatively easy task. I googled for Open Coffee groups in Ireland and populated a list in typepad with links to each club. I then made a link to this list on the sidebar to the right, again using the tools available in Typepad. The proces from start to finish took 18 minutes.

Hello world!

Eoin Kennedy at Limerick Open Coffee.
Eoin Kennedy explains the value of social networking in The Mall of Limerick Open Coffee.


In 2010, creative multimedia students from Tipperary Institute attended regular sessions of Open Coffee in the Absolute Hotel of Limerick. They set up a #LOCC hashtag on Twitter, an Open Coffee group on, and a vibrant word of mouth network. Occasionally, a few monthly blog posts helped spark interest in these casual meet-ups held on the first Thursday of every month.

In 2016, a group of creative multimedia students set up a WordPress site on Blacknight. They planned to use a web scraper to pull content from Ireland’s first OpenCoffee site and then republish the content inside WordPress. This idea remained dormant for nearly four years.

In 2020, the process has started with the help of Creative Media and Design students on the Clonmel Digital Campus. We start by documenting more than 10,000 page views were recorded for the legacy content.

Today we are improving Just remind you that the OpenCoffee Club role is to organise real-world informal meetups to chat, network and grow in Ireland. To do that, we need to promote the website by creating a outstanding design and emphasize our members and share our meeting calendar to the world.

Trustworthy live feeds

Sheila Newman wonders, “Live Feeds what are they?”

As part of my research I googgled ” what is a live feed”. Google brought me to “Live Feed is a 2006 horror film directed by Ryan Nicholson and starring Kevan Ohtsji, Taayla Markell and Stephen Chang”. I then changed it to Live feeds Google’s search response was  “No definitions were found for Live Feeds”. Luckily for I have a third definition of what is meant by Live feeds .

My Definition of Live Feeds:

A live feed is an ever changing piece of information which is inserted in to a website and is then instantaneously updated on the screen.

I know some people will not agree but I welcome their insight as you would never learn anything if people did not share their opinion and knowledge! 

What can they do for

Live feeds can breathe life back into if anyone has been looking at the site recently the last post was way back when the dinosaur still roamed the earth!

 Ok I am going a bit far but with the technology we have today. Sites like which are left crying out for new life can be given one.  Live feeds they can be set up and used in sites and give the user live up to the minute information. So add live feeds or book your one way ticket to the way back machine!

There are many site which use live feeds is one as is ,, need I go on? They ask users to to share what they are doing which is then shared instantly.

This leads us to my last Question what is a Trustworthy live feed? 

A trustworthy live feed is one which you trust obviously! I have named a few sites which all have live content and have connections to  So the creators can choose a relevant site and insert a live feed to  and breathe life back into this site.
