From being branded an event which could “do more harm than good” and was poised to “damage the Ireland Inc brand“, TechLudd, a first-time event in Dublin last week for the tech startup community, is now being described as “a huge success”. As Eirepreneur points out, blogger Jessica Roy says “It was the most successful most attended event, barring a conference, that the Irish tech community has ever seen”. Check out the great photo albums on Pix.ie, and the next event will be in Limerick. Congratulations to the organisers for ‘damaging’ the Ireland Inc brand in such a creative manner. [Update: Just for the record, former vehement critic Paul Walsh has now retracted his criticism].
