Just to give you all advance notice that on March 10th EMBC and Synetrix will be holding a Conference for Network Managers, IT Co-ordinators, companies providing support for schools and other stake holders. This will be full day conference in Loughborough.
Full details and booking forms will appear on the EMBC portal soon, but I just wanted to make sure you book the date in your dairy. There will be presentations and some workshops (full details to follow) but there should be something for everyone (primary and secondary / large schools and small schools).
For Northants members, this will replace the IT Managers' Meeting for March.
I'll let people know when booking is open.embc Regional Technical Workshop - 10th March 2008, 9.30 Imago, Loughborough University

Full details to follow shortly.
Hopefully, I'll get to go. Already marked my calendar and e-mailed my manager
It'd be better if they bothered spending time on creating a questionnaire that doesn't allow you to select more than one answer on questions that only require one answer.
A quick check would have stopped that happening, oh and the the blatant typo in one of the earlier questions.
Looks like this would be quite useful.
Someone forgot the year though!
Bah clashes with the LEAMIS SIMS event that I am attending.
Shame, would have useful, and nice to meet people.
edit: scratch that, I just can't read a calendar.

So I guess there will be a few Edugeekers there.
We should get together at lunch to chew the fat (metaphorically, I am not commenting on the standard of the lunch)
I will make sure I where my edugeek lanyard then (can't get away with the shirt due to going on behalf of the school).
So easiest way is find me and say hello.
Not that we don't know what you look like
You see there is a reason my pic is my avater it is for this very reason.
So edugeekers can come and say hello to me when I am to various events etc
Yes, because saying hello is top of our list
Ok maybe hitting me and then say hello better to talk to me than those LA bods...
On serious note made mission while back any time I go anywhere to events etc to talk to at least one edugeek member. Sometimes I manage that sometimes I don't..
Russ has a good point.
If you use a silly avatar like mine then you could give Russ a lift to the RM conference, spend most of the day talking to him then get a PM then next day on here asking why I hadn't said hello to him
