Fun with Pictures
Remember “ Fun with Statistics ”, the blog post where I noted that prisoners are given 8.5m 2 of cell space whilst school pupils are given 4m 2 of teaching space?

The billion pound bet on education in Essex

Fun with statistics – Building Schools for the Future

What have Microsoft ever done for us?
All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have th e Romans ever done for us?

Semantics - what is a managed service?
I was chatting with Leighton Searle last week - Leighton's our Business Manager for Schools, which means that he seems to spend his week travelling up and down the country meeting local authorities and talking about their plans for the future.

Building Schools for the Future, and building consensus today
At the NAACE conference I ran into an old friend, Sheyne Lucock, who is the General Inspector for BSF (Building Schools for the Future) and ICT at Barking and Dagenham Local Authority.

Last week at BETT 2008
Last week I was very quiet on the blog - mainly because it was BETT week, when 29,000 of the UK's most enthusiastic educational ICT people gather at Olympia for a few days. Most visitors only come for a day, but those manning stands are there for the whole week, including Saturday. Perhaps next year...
