Aside from the sites, a lot of that list is very unhealthy. Maybe Leaving Las Vegas should have be set in Dublin.

Spent a bit of time on Dallas over the last 6 months. It seems to be booming alright and there is a lot of infrastructure stuff going on there. Dallas Forth Worth is a massive sprawling conurbation though and one could easily end up spending a lot of time on the freeway...Definitely a superior quality of life in Austin.

As for the bay area, I can only speak about the film scene and everyone is getting lots of work from tech companies. Things dropped off severely a couple of years ago but its been up and up since. Its very difficult to find good people for production these days as companies seem to have unlimited funds for video and web communications budgets. There is also loads of work around for good designers, ui people, web designers...

'For the first time in 25 years, Ireland recently joined the ranks of our top 10 migrant source countries for permanent migration.'

Last year, the government almost doubled the number of Working Holiday Maker visas granted to Irish nationals, up to almost 22 000 places. Ireland is now the third largest source of temporary skilled migrants through the 457 visa program.

Does anybody know anything about the level of remittances (if any) sent by emigrants back to Ireland (e.g. half of an unemployed couple emigrating, living on the cheap and paying the mortgage from abroad, rather than surrendering the house and carrying the debt)?
I'm just wondering, because for poorer countries, that is often one of the most efficient forms of capital transfer. Could our situation have got to the point where people find it's worth doing yet?

Irish people planning to go to Canada on a working holiday visa will have to wait until next year to apply, as the quota for Irish passport holders has been filled for 2012.

A total of 5,350 International Experience Canada (IEC) visas were available to Irish people this year, which allow those aged 18 to 35 to work legally in the country for up to one year.

A very poignant piece. Ten more years of this under FF/FG/LAB.

From today's Examiner

Quote:
More Irish people are leaving the country than immigrants who came here during the boom, a detailed study has found.

New research from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows more than 76,000 people left the country last year.

Of this figure — which has almost trebled compared to the 29,000 who emigrated in 2005 — more than 40,000 of these people were originally from Ireland.

The 40,000 figure outstrips the remaining 36,000 of departees, of whom the majority were from the original eight EU countries, with the rest mainly born in recently added EU states — about 15,600 people.

Interesting. Asylum figures 10% of what they were. So, is it safe to say at least 90% of asylum claims were pulling the piss?

Yeah, it's quite remarkable how the levels of opression of various peoples in certain African countries seems to fluctuate with the fortunes of our economy!

@NigelTuffnel, @Hifi - have a look at page two of this report - http://www.orac.ie/pdf/PDFStats/Monthly ... report.pdf (PDF)

The number of asylum seekers has been declining at a steady rate since 2001. There doesn't seem to be any relation to the Irish economic condition. Don't let that stop ye making unfounded assertions.
