  2. Hi Alan

    I totally agree with you -- it is almost like a guerrilla warfare of a small group of mobile networks operating outside the official ICT structure. It is finding the time and resources to carry on this subversive activity while maintaining oneself 'official' identity -- certainly I find the students play along.

  3. At the O.U., this approach to resource delivery is called "skunkworks", right Tony? ;-)

    There's something about outsourced web 2.0 systems that makes people want to rebel - stand up to the man!

    Can you afford to spend the time NOT engaging in this sort of activity?
