Google Missing Manual

BN -- Every week I discover a time-saving technique using Google. I just thumbed through a book that will add another 30 timesavers to my skillset. This week, I was interested in songs by Irish artists that dealt with "home." Google allows you to do a phrase search even if you don't have an idea of what the complete phrase looks like.

Maureen Gallace in the Hyde

Icy Barns by Maureen GallaceDUBLIN -- I shared a Gallace moment in the Douglas Hyde Gallery today.

Aidan Dunne on Graduate Shows

IRISH TIMES -- Art critic Aidan Dunne has traveled around to most third level graduate shows. He thinks "there is a tendency to take the old manual processes for granted. This may relate to the prevalent assumption that ideas matter more than their material expression, that content outweighs form, but it is a reckless assumption."
