The Web Summit Summation

Day two of the Web Summit saw some of the biggest names in tech take to the main stage again including Elon Musk, the last minute and most welcome addition to the event.

The day greeted Google Ventures, Kevin Rose to the stage yet again as well as Leonard Kleinrock continuing his discussion on the internet and how something he fathered has grown.

David Carr of the New York Times and Shane Smith of Vice made a point of discussing new media on the main stage and how Vice has become what it is today.

The highlight of the entire event however was Elon Musk taking to the stage alongside Enda Kenny and explaining that the key to success could come from free education, with Kenny making the point that Tesla motors should make their way to Ireland.

For those that don’t know, Elon Musk is the billionaire behind Paypal, SpaceX as well as Tesla motors and the man has visions of a “hyperloop”; an incredibly fast way of getting from one side of the United States to the other, in a system that’s somewhat reminiscent of Futuramas air tubes in New New York.

Robotics companies took to the floor in Alphaville with an influx of media and music companies attempting to find investors. _MG_2990

If the Dublin Web Summit showcases anything, it’s that technology and ideas are constantly flowing, and that through networking opportunities like this, we may see great leaps in numerous industries within months.

Also having a consistently working Wi-Fi connection as a tech conference is a must.

    That’s why plenty of folks do not wixh to know if his
    or her’s significant other is two timing them.
    It scares him or her that this maybe something they
    never get over. Many individuals don’t wish to be placed in
    that position. If you discovered it you think you could
    handle it?

    Whhen talking about not cheap, The Island is definitely not a laughing matter.
    But truth to tell if I simply had the hard cash then I Am
    quite certain I would probably be kayaking in Waiukiki or cholling at Sunset.

    It is better than digging out from a pile a snow every few days.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied onn
    the vido to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why throw way your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be
    giving us something enlightening too read?

    Keep a record regarding the benefits and drawbacks of the different types of binoculars you may be truly interested in. There
    are some great field glasses out there but to be honest there is no perfect pair.

    Try keeping a list regarding the advantages and
    drawbacks of the different kinds of binoculars you may be truly interested in.
    There are great field glasses available to choose
    from but let’s face it there’s no such thing as the perfect pair.
