Thanks to my friend, James McBennett, I was able to secure last minute tickets to the sold out TEDxDublin 2014 that took place at the Bordais Gas Theater. It was an amazing venue and kudos to the organizing team for creating such an interactive environment.
However, the most remarkable part of the event was the people, especially those that took center stage to touch on our ever changing landscape. Here are 5 takeaways from folks that rocked the stage.

Awesome first day at Google for Startup Weekend. The energy is up high to the roof with developers, designers and business peoples ready to hack away for the next 54 hours.
OnePlace is here after just winning the Accenture Leaders of Tomorrow Award and securing a place on the September 2014 NDRC launchpad but all we, Alex Keaney and I, have is an idea and the business acumen. That’s why we came to #SWDub to take it to the next level and it is exciting having Daniel Beere – a kick-ass UI/UX designer on the team to make this happen.
The journey has been amazing so far and here are 7 takeaways from the Day 1 at #SWDub:
1. Developers are scarce. Biz Devs are in surplus.
Designers are latinos.
2. Social and Mobile is king. More than 80% of Pitched Ideas
3. Find a problem that affects you. Solve if for others.
4. Growth Hacking your Team = 50% Jokes + 40% Laughs + 10% Ideas
5. Hardware/Dashboards are NOT sexy to pitch… …just yet.
6. Digital Pancakes: Word Play > Ideas > Start > Validate
7. “Save the world” startups are not welcome.
Oh you didn’t think I was going to write a 1,000 word post, did you? It’s back to hacking away for Day 2. You can follow live updates from me on twitter – @NubiKay @NubiKayBlog and @OnePlaceHQ.
