Unfortunately, I didn't get to go to Ireland, instead I traveled with some friends up to New York to visit with the Irish Learning Alliance.
In addition to hanging out on the train and in New York with a great group of folks who are really doing some forward thinking about online learning, virtual worlds and knowledge media, I also was able to hear the the Prime Minister of Ireland, Brian Cowen speak.
The event was attended by learning leaders from KPMG, Diageo, UBS, Citi, CitiCards, RiskTrain, Deloitte, Astra Zeneca, Morgan Stanley, Tiffany and Sun Micro Systems. And the keynote was my co-author for Learning in 3D, Tony O'Driscoll (who was born in Ireland...the perfect keynote event and he did a great job!).
You can see Tony's keynote slides and all the information from the meeting at the blog for the Irish Learning Alliance. You can access information from these speakers and subjects.
