Interesting that it seems like the big corporates gave the least interesting talks - perhaps they don't want us to know what they are doing - or (more likely) they don't actually understand education very well, and so don't have a lot to say :)

Just also wanted to comment on your issue of both reporting what people are saying, and also commenting yourself. I find the same when live blogging - I did try putting my comments in square brackets, but I don't think I ever really managed it consistently. I don't know how you find CoverItLive, but I suspect that there is a better live blogging tool waiting to be designed - any takers?

Finally, thanks as always for the coverage of the day, sounds like a couple of talks that I should be sorry I missed!

A great job as usual Andy. Owen, was looking out for you on the day, but couldn't see you?
