Neil Leyden, behind the Digital Media Forum has won €100k for his brilliant idea to make Ireland a digital hub in the above competition. The competition was sponsored by Cisco Ireland, whose chairman Kim Majerus also works with Leyden on the gateway Ireland project. Small country eh?
Leyden’s vision to establish an International Digital Services Centre is hardly a very original idea, and sounds remarkably like a proposal Eamon Ryan was pushing last year. The Irish Times - Wed, Jul 22, 2009 - Strategy to create up to 30,000 new 'green' jobs.
I would be very annoyed if I had put some effort into making an original proposal to win this competition.
