I love it when a plan comes together, and I’m happy that two schools are going to come along and talk about their experiences of rolling out Windows 7 this summer. And they’ve gamely agreed to do that before they’ve actually found out what it’s like, as they plan to start rolling out the released version when they download it tomorrow or Friday! I’m hoping therefore that they’ll give a good warts-and-all tale of the things that they have learnt – hopefully saving other people time in the future.

The brave souls are Alan Richards, from West Hatch School, and Dave Coleman, from Twynham School.

(I’m especially impressed that Dave’s happy to leave the haven of Mudeford beach during August! See it for yourself on Karen Withak’s photo)

If you haven’t booked your place yet (for the event, not the beach), the details are here
