    Change to strapline

    So I noticed that the Edugeek strapline is now "The IT Professionals' life line" rather than "The Educational IT Professionals' lifeline"

    Can't say I know noticed when it changed and perhaps not a major thing to some people but am wondering why this is?

    Is this a strategic retargetting at a broader audience and moving away from just us educational folks?
    Or perhaps it just fits a little neater in between the D and the K of the logo?

    This changed earlier in the year I think ... but there are lots of non-education folk who use this site as a reference area so it isn't that surprising. We just need to persuade a few more of them to discuss what they do and how they do things.

    There are also a lot of former educational IT types who have moved on whofelt that it should be more inclusive. After all, we have members from the banking, govt, military and corporate world.
    Don't worry though, we'll never lose the eductional specific forums but we do intend to introduce others in eth future relevent to other sectors and a selction in your user profile will enable you to choose which forums you will want to see.

    It could quite easily be translated as 'Educating Geeks' rather than 'geeks in education'
