Now with added links to ALT-C related posts and photo evidence!
What can I say - it was a fantastic night. I got to meet a whole load of people who have only previously existed for me in the world of skype, text and podcasts. The evening started off at the sponsored ALT 'taste of the Orient' social. Thanks for the seemingly inexhaustible supply of free beer WebCT! - Although I nearly had a heart attack when my fortune-cookie fortune informed me that I would either be coming into an obscene amount of money soon or putting a course on WebCT. Maybe you guys shouldn't forewarn potential customers about your licensing fees :-)
After that we went to the Lass O'Gowrie, which turned out to be a really nice pub.
I'll post pictures shortly, in the mean time, this is the roll call of shame:
Derek Morrison: Great overview of Stephen Downes's concluding remarks on the theme of collaboration, comments and links on the contribution which won best research paper - congratulations to Brian Kelly, Lawrie Phipps, and Caro Howell!
