Future of the internet event

23 Mar 2011

IET Ireland is holding an event in Dublin tomorrow (24 March) to evaluate the possibility that in less than a year ISPs applying to regional internet registries will be refused. Mícheál Ó Foghlú of the TSSG at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), will be a key speaker.

In addition to being the executive director of the Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG), Ó Foghlú is the CTO of FeedHenry, a 2010 spin-out of the TSSG’s commercial arm, the Centre for Converged Services (3CS) at WIT.

FeedHenry is a hosted environment for developing and deploying cross-platform mobile apps, with a hosted server-side. It is currently showcasing at CTIA Wireless, which is running from 22–24 March in Orlando.

Ó Foghlú is also chair of the Irish IPv6 Task Force and a member of the Advisory Committee of the World Wide Web Consortium and a member of the Advisory Council of the Internet Society.

This IET Ireland event is free to attend, but places are limited. It will be held in the Alexander Hotel, Fenian Street (off Merrion Square) and will start at 6.15pm on 24 March. To register, email Pat Kidney at pkidney@theiet.org.
