    Anyone else have an opinion on this?

    Ah, but then how do you know the moderator won't edit all their posts...?

    Sheesh ... we have already been through this.

    Mods and admins will moderate abuse or things that go into slander / libel. Those that hung around over Xmas are aware of the lengths we go to to keep things running smoothly.

    Do we remove or edit individual posts because we do not agree with opions? No ...

    As for the OP ... I would love to see your blog, but protect yourself in case your existing or future employer has an issue with it. If you want to host it elsewhere then I would recommend blogspot if you don't already have some space somewhere or perhaps wordpress.

    I've never seen a poll here yet that wins by 100%. 100% people would like to see this blog. There's a lot of people on here who have varied different views. It's nice to find something that brings us all together, yet there's always someone who can find something to argue about

    P.S. I would like to see it too.

    @cjwhite I am also in a similar situation here to.

    Have attended some BSF Meetings for similar reasons however I have managed to possibly go one step further where I have managed to get the school to be part of the BSF testing process.

    We have been asked to take part in the Proof of Concept for the BSF ICT Infrastruce for the County. Which involves the school testing the proposed infrastructure under BSF I am expecting things to start moving with the testing process towards the end of the month.

    From the responses you have had to your poll a Blog would be a good idea and I may also consider doing one as there seems to be plenty of people interested on here.

    However before I commit to anything I will need to speak to the BSF Team to see if this would be ok, so I shall keep those of you interested posted with their reply and with any luck the blog will start sometime next month.

    It would be great to see these blogs..

    I've been through strategy for change 1 and 2 and am about to go to competitive dialogue. My hands have been tied up to now but the documents will be public soon and would be happy to share my experiences too

    Hi all,

    Enough talk of the mods... Grumble I appreciate you stopping by to clear it up. Lets not spoil a thread I'm kinda proud of, seeing as I hardly ever post on any forums :¬)

    I'm glad you guys think it will be useful. Like Hightower says, 100% is quite a strong message (watch some bugger go and spoil it now!)

    It might be interesting to hear what the proposed infrastructure consists of, and how much influence (or otherwise) you have had in it's development.

    I am very interested to hear all about the process.

    I hope you get the nod of approval to go ahead and blog!

    Think most schools & network managers in the County know of the proposed infrastructure under BSF, not sure how many if any know of the proposed software\connectivity solution that will be offered alongside the proposed infrastructure.

    I don't think schools had much influence over the decisions as there is a dedicated department (I think) for this.

    As far as I am aware the school will test the proposed solution to see how well it will work during the Proof of Concept.

    If it works it will get the thumbs up and the go ahead and if not I think it will be back to the drawing board.

    Needless to say I obviously know what the proposed software\connectivity solution is but until I get the go ahead to disclose such information my lips are sealed

    But as soon as I am given the go ahead I will as professionally as possible spill the beans so to speak!
