I've just put the slides used in the presentation up at http://www.clongowes.com/cesi/CESI-pres.html .
Not sure that the slides mean a whole lot in the absence of the verbal waffle of which, thankfully, there is no record. I would have been supervising 140 teenagers in study on Saturday morning if it weren't for the CESI conference. Believe me I was much more nervous about getting up and talking to a small group of teachers on a topic on which I am not much more than a beginner, than I have ever been about supervising large numbers of students.
I think Con is being kind with his words. For my part as a teacher I was heartened to have ILUG there to show Linux off. It was also great to have OpenApp there to heighten awareness and also to have somewhere to point to when teachers threw out the question "who is going to provide us with tech support". Well done and thanks to Nils, Niall's and Frank for making things happen. Several colleagues asked me who these people were and why they were willing to give up their free time to promote something for nothing.
