Feed For Enterprise Ireland Events

with 7 comments

So instead of whining about it, I decided to scratch my itch. So here is a feed for Enterprise Ireland upcoming events scraped courtesy of feed43.com.

Add http://feed43.com/enterprise-ireland-events-2006.xml to your favourite feedreader. Service only guaranteed while they keep to a consistent format.

  1. Joe,

    Fair play for that!
    Pity their site has these various shortcomings, especially an organisation with the role it has – doesn’t look great!

    Thanks again,
    Richard

  2. oh, that reminds me — don’t forget about http://upcoming.org/ , a really nice web2.0 community-driven event-calendaring website, perfect for this kind of thing. the guys behind it are very nice, and it still works great even after Yahoo! bought them out 😉

  3. oh I almost forgot — one great thing about upcoming.org is that you can syndicate events in all sorts of useful formats. that’s what really makes it great for this kind of event stream…

  4. […] Joe Drumgoole built his own feed for Enterprise Ireland upcoming events and I added it to the Open Irish Directory under the ‘Business & Economy -> Enterprise’ branch (see grazr panel in sidebar). Doc Searls would call that DIY-IT. […]

  5. Thank you Joe 🙂

  7. This is needed!

    I wrote to EI asking them to implement a feed and the response I got back was

    “I can suggest that events does this but cannot promise anything… And this is the first request for this I have had in almost three years..”

    They haven’t even got the word ‘Internet’ in the categories list on application forms so they’re not likely to get Web 2.0 stuff, let alone implement it.

    Heck, I’ve played around with the idea of building an online application to make it simple to apply for grants. The only words I hear from them is “you must follow the process” – yet they don’t know how to improve their own processes…

    OK enough of the rant.
