    You should see what the industry players want us to charge you!! Almost every time I meet an MD the first thing they say is 'Why don't you make it subscription only?'

    That's because all they think about is money money money - stick 'em in the same lot as the bankers of this world. Either that or hang 'em up by their testicles.

    "An IT technical forum made up from representitives of almost every school in the UK, and major suppliers to the UK education market, and international IT education bods".

    If a simple click through advert to sell to every school in the UK doesn't get the sales bod interested - he can't be much of a sales bod, or doesn't think the education market could drive enough sales for him.

    A place where suppliers, edugeeks, and manufacturers can all get together and live in harmony. So long as no-one states a preference in a long list of product vs product wars.

    I tell suppliers I come across I explain to them that it is a good place to get your company a good name. To schools I know of I explain to them that it is invaluable as a support net to our every day lives.

    We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week.

    Think like a salesperson.

    edugeek is a forum for/of people who spend the ICT budget.


    I think anything else wont make the impact.

    .....But all the decision of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting. By a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs.

    Edugeek is even better then Benedetti cling film.

    And if any of you arn't converts you should give it a try. It's so easy. I used to have a very negative relationship with my cling film. One night while trying to microwave baked beans I even suffered a cling film related injury, I still have the scars. But I've now discovered Benedetti cling film, I have a much more positive relationship with my cling film.
