If you’re going to San Francisco…

..be sure to say hi to another Dublin sister city — at least, a digital sister city if not a full on formal civic twin, like San Jose (whose role in this capacity was noted previously this week on this blog). News just in that SF mayor Gavin Newsom has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU — there’s always an acronym in a press release, as surely as Bertie can home in on any photo op) with Irish Minister for Communications Noel Dempsey to “form new collaborative channels” with Dublin’s Digital Hub. I’lll be interested to see if anybody in either location runs with this opportunity, but it clearly has some potential as there are a lot of creative companies in San Francisco and in the Digital Hub, particularly some of the small ones that could get a boost from a transtlantic relationship.

On a more general note, we now know where Minister Demspey is during this week’s Flight of the Ministers, when they all flee this rainy isle on St Patrick’s junkets throught the globe. One is always left wondering who is actually running the country… rumours in the past have indicated it’s Dustin, though I’d prefer to imagine it might be Jack from “Lost”.
