Spend a Penny, Pay a Pound

Posted by Jason Roe on Nov 29, 2013 4:41:02 PM

It was 2009 and I found myself caught up in a really strange situation. Up until now, I’ve never written or spoken about the saga in public.

It was my first 15 minutes of fame that ended up on the websites of CNN, Sky News, Wired and in papers like the Financial Times, not to mention a slot on RTE Six One News.

Anothers Life brings the lives of others back to life

Posted by Jason Roe on Mar 16, 2010 5:55:53 PM

The lives of others was an experimental blog that was started back on March 18th 2008. What made this blog compelling was an anonymous format that provided the ultimate freedom to share or to speak, to mention the unmentionable and to explore feelings and emotion. Almost two years on and the site has now closed its doors to new secrets.

The reaction in comments on the lives of others blog and on twitter has been quite strong. Many were wondering why a blog which was nominated for an Irish blog award is closing its doors. Many have speculated that the such an anonymous medium could actually cause a lot of headaches in terms of moderation. Who knows .. but RIP the lives of others.

However there is some good news. Anothers Life, a website that provides a similar format has come to the rescue. I set up the site with the aim of keeping the this medium alive. The new site has no connection with lives of others, other than the anonymous format that is used.

I'm sitting here looking at the 20 pages of search results for Luas Crash on twitter. Not to mention the Picture of the Luas Crash with the Luas crashing into a Dublin Bus on flikr (Viewed 11,689 times). Who needs breaking news when you have twitter?
