    BETT was ok this year. I Enjoyed seeing the new parent app from groupcall mainly

    Sorry didn't make it over to the edugeek stand, I walked by quickly and saw pizza but had to catch a mate for a beer and it was getting late by that time.

    Also took a look at the Acer stand with all their weird and wacky windows 8 devices, TASC software and the Discover on the capita stand.

    Overall not as much innovation this year as last but still worth a visit.

    I enjoyed BETT this year but was a bit disappointed with the layout, with several of the big zones in the middle it made some of the aisles round the outsides a bit like Hogwards staircases and they went to dead ends meaning lots of the smaller stands were a bit lost as people backtracked etc. While I don't advocate the roman road straight lines format, it was very hard to cover the show in a sweeping motion like you could do at Olympia. However, first year and all that, very impressive venue but was surprised how quiet Saturday was this year (maybe put-off by the DLR being closed) where-as Friday was heaving and at times slightly too overcrowded round the top end. If I'd wanted to buy a smartboard this year then I would have been in geek heaven, as for the rest of the show, a bit lacking in technology from previous shows but then maybe this year I wasn't really looking for anything specific.

    As for the traditional see what I could pick-up for the children, well I think I did OK. Good job I don't fly to BETT ;-)

    Enjoyed the show all in all though there wasn't much that made me go wow. Still just about worth going to. Excel is a way better venue than Olympia, so much more space, though it was quite confusing to find my way around. Nice to have more space to take a break in the central area, and loads of choice of food, though some more benches would have been nice

    Enjoyed BETT again this year. Shame I couldn't be there on the Friday, but at least it gave my feet a rest . Didn't really find/see anything truly amazing, but always good to catch up with people and see the latest hardware!

    I was thinking more of the tedious nodding scene in Family Guy: It's a trap. The universe would kill itself to get away from the awkwardness.
