The Panel: Dr Maeve Connolly

"I'm intersted in the parallel between innovation and obsolescence."

Dr Connolly discussed the notion of technology advancing, while at the same time older technology is not so much obsolete as they are primed to be seen in a new light - limitations are, in effect, no longer an issue. Also important in the new media looking at the Irish context, and our reaction. Furthermore, the playing field has been levelled, as the internet has allowed a huge ground for self-published work and developing a modern something not dissimilar to the indie writing scene that gave the world fanzines at the like.
