Biolink USA Ireland

  • News
  • Dull, too little information
Here's a URL a bit in a search for its identity. Alternatively, I may just be too dense to perceive it but I don't think so. With the name Biolink in its title, the site would seem to be about links between the U.S. and Ireland relating to some aspect of biology. It sort of has this in the form of news articles posted monthly on the site that are actually links to news on other sites. That seems to be about the extent of the linking. Other aspects of the site include two bloggers (snore) talking about life in Texas or Ireland. While the stated aims of the site are to foster a sense of community between the Ireland Irish and the U.S. Irish in biotechnology, the whole thing just doesn't seem to work very well. Perhaps a greater focus on news would help.
