I was thinking about this and the other sorts of annual lists and wondered who I’d nominate for an online people of the year awards. These aren’t about building the biggest business or making the most money. It is about people who are genuinely making Ireland a better place.
My list would have
Eamon Leonard His bio says “Dubliner. Startup advisor. Angel investor.
@Funconf, @WhiskeyMarch, @PubStandardsDub – VP Engineering at EngineYard” He’s also helping to nurture an ecosystem and startup community in Dublin in the best possible way.
Stephen Donnelly who may be the best TD in the Dail. He’s one of the few who knows what needs to be done.
Yes I know most of the people on the list and I’ve worked with a few. It reflects my own biases. And there is a total of one woman on the list.
The question is who else should be added to the list ?
