A Bit About Me

Published by

So, if you want my professional, non-fun, boring, worky side, look me up on LinkedIn. For the fun stuff, you’ll need to come meet me for a pint. Living in Edinburgh these days, in case you’re curious.

I‘m pretty much an open book, so if you want, just ask. I can be contacted by email: mail at DarrenByrne dot com

If you want to know more about me, then have a look over the blog. Here’s a few posts to get you started:

    I want to know more.

    What’s the capital of Cambodia?

    Does it matter if you don’t heat the cup before you have your coffee?

    Why the platypus?

    2. Yes, it matters. According to Blue Coffee Brewing. You should warm your cup before pouring the coffee in; this keeps the coffee hot longer. In addition coffee should be brewed “just off the boil”, between 95-98°C. If the coffee is brewed with boiling water, delicate flavours will be lost. If the water is not hot enough you will not extract all of the flavour from the coffee, ending up with a weaker cup.

    3. Why? Isn’t it obvious? It’s proof that God has a sense of humour.

    Cool info. That cat looks cuddly and like it could zap you with laser beams out of it’s eyes at the same time, haha.

    Hi Darren,

    I was interested to know did you come up with the cartoon of Biffo / Brian Cowan sitting on the loo pulling the toilet roll with the word Votes on each sheet of paper.

    If not you , perhaps you might let me know who ?

    Talk soon.

    Hello Mr Byrne. I find your stories unsettling- we have lead an almost exact same life… from bad school days, Galway (I’m persuming your from Galway) , to living in killester- we are even the same age. I wear glasses (sometimes) and have a manbag (I call it a mag). I fear I may be your doppelganger…
