    Fair comment?

    Paul Hiscox (BrizschoolsIT) on Twitter

    @bobharrisonset Can't treat anything on edugeek.net as substantive, its full of marketeers and slanderers. re:Schools being treated like 'an open chequebook', says NAHT - News - TES Connect
    Stange that, as we spend a hell of a lot of time removing slander (lawers love slander, it pays for holidays don't yer know), and marketeers (sponsors) who are not offering the kind of prices they should be doing, get ripped into. Nice link though.

    Considering everyone on this site can be contacted via the site, and are covered by libel/slander laws etc... He's not really right at all. Any claims I make as a user on here rest squarely on my shoulders to prove, should I need to. Anyone who makes stuff up would only be damaging their own reputation and potentially damaging their career.

    He's welcome to his opinion... I just don't happen to agree with it. What have we done to upset him?

    Can't treat anything on Twitter as substantive, it's full of anonymous fakers and corporate shills.

    P.S. Follow me on Twitter!

    Maybe the original edugeek comments hit a bit to close to home for this particular "Local Authority man, manage a team of IT technicians. Working in Primary education."

    Purely speculation on my part but it would explain the reaction.

    Why not invite him here for a debate on the matter? If he is so sure of himself, and values his integrity, he'll not decline. If he does turn down the offer, I'll take from that that he didn't have the best day at work and his comments really are quite insignificant.

    I'm a bit miffed about his comment, I'm neither a marketeer nor slanderer.

    Decided to delete my comments - not worth the hassle

    Considering the article and the NAHT report contains one of my comments, I'm quite annoyed by the fact that he's effectively calling me a slanderer... Which in itself is slander.

    I had a message from someone 'senior' this morning outlining as to why he may be upset with us, but I shall post something on Tuesday in the general direction of what it is, and we may have to be a little more objective in what we post and why. Still, it put a smile on my face this morning as it made me relaise just how ingrained we've become in the education system.
    It seems we may have derailed someones plans somewhere.

    mmm

    I was going to comment- then thought no - I won't - because everyone will know what I was going to say and I don't think you can be done yet for thinking (unless you happen to articulate it in the back of a car with the mic still on )

    regards

    Just to say that when you get to 30 clients/class - you've got to start to be creative with your "home" APs.

    But for the last 5 years, 1 "home" AP class has worked fine for banks of 15 laptops at a time.

    And the 1st time I bought an "enterprise" "suitable for education" solution - half the netbooks wouldn't work with it (blaming the netbooks BTW not the enterprise solution )

    So even PG planning leads to PP results if the IT Gods don't smile down on you

    But obviously in the money-no-object-for-primary-wireless world the man's dead right

    Please feel free to delete any slanderous comments

    regards

    Simon
