I remember turning up to meet an eclectic mix of people Mike Sharples Birmingham University Bob Harrison representing Toshiba, Geof Stead of tribal , Dave Whyley of Wolverhampton (learning2go) and Steve Sidaway of TXTtools. Well it was an OK gig but relationships made changed my thoughts directions in technology forever.
