006 – Mining CAO Data & What’s The Story with Instagram v Snapchat

On the week that tens of thousands of school leavers receive their first offers from the Irish government’s Central Applications Office, we discuss an interesting statistical analysis of the CAO Points System by Glenn Moynihan.

As Facebook respond head on to rival Snapchat’s Stories feature a very similar feature by Instagram we talk about this and the relative chances of survival of these and other social platforms.

Finally we talk about the incoming Upstart Festival happening at the RDS Dublin in October, and the Irish Regional Pitch events happening in Limerick, Cork, Dublin & Galway. This is the 4th Upstart festival, which was founded in Amsterdam by Limerick native, Paul O’Connell – Not that one, another POC!
