    From my perspective no union such as Unison, or even the teaching unions that take associate membership from other school based staff have much idea about the actual jobs we do.

    If you could somehow form a Edugeek affiliation with a union that could combine their muscle and Edugeek's expertise in representing school based ict staff I'm sure quite a number of people would consider joining up. Just a suggestion, I'm sure you have a lot on your plate at the moment.
    EduGeek.net as union won't happen mainly down to cost (Tony once looked into this for us unless anyone has got really uncle lurking anywhere).

    But like idea of affiliation but do have problem if choose one union over another.

    Unions are a very closed set we are making head way and last month had an offer to introduce us to the unions so that we can start talking with them so do watch this space.

    At last ... the freedom ... the joy of speaking ... not having anyone to be answerable too (apart from 15000 or so members, but who wants to split hairs at a glorious moment like this! and that is before we mention that you still have to answer to your dearly beloved ... and kids wanting to play remote trains!!!)

    The best of luck with it all and we know you will do well. As always ... anything I can help with (other than organising stuff) just ask. Happy to volunteer a few people to do it

    Firstly congratulations on whats been achieved so far in getting to this position and good luck for the future.

    Secondly it may be worth listing some of the items you require for the office set up as if theres something I can do to help I will and judging by the response I am sure other sponsors / contributors would do the same.

    Sorry I missed this last night. Best wishes DB you thoroughly deserve all the riches this venture has to offer! Personally I'd say this is one of the friendliest and well run forums I've encountered anywhere on the interweb and welcome anything that may improve our community.

    Good luck with the venture I'm certain that it will work out well for both you and the site that you have created.

    Good luck! Must have been a hard decision to give up your job and I'm sure your colleagues at the LEA will miss you. But this site is an amazing resource, one of the first places I turn to for help and have solved many problems simply by clicking "search". I look forward to seeing how much bigger it can grow and how much of an influence it can have on IT in education
