The Null Device

Not really surprising: Ireland is set to become the third wealthiest country in Europe, and is about to overtake Germany. Not surprisingly, they're quite a bit ahead of the UK already, as the British government has its head up its arse in a lot of matters (witness the RIP bill, for one example, not to mention dropping the ball on telecom deregulation and e-commerce). I imagine a lot of this is due to Ireland not having the luxury of saying "we conquered half the world, we're a major world power, we can do as we bloody well please" and proceeding to cock things up. In any case, I suspect that a lot of companies based in the UK will be moving over to Ireland in future, and not just to evade the British government's surveillance laws (as some ISPs are).
