Following on from Brian’s thoughts re the Unconference, here’s a opportunity to participate in EduCampOnline 2007 where participation and organization are dispersed from the organizers to potential attendees.

This has been  set up by George at the University of Manitoba and is due to run between 24th-28th September. The password is c4mp.

See you there!
