#altc2011 Day 1

ALT-C 2011 I left Leicester ridiculously early to get to Leeds before nightfall but arrived in good time for the start if the conference. It's a nice change to be back at a conference on university campus rather than all these swanky conference centres (although the facilities in Leeds are good). Sponsor notice: The Google trade stand has the best swag ;-)

The opening keynote was interesting, but I'm still not convinced about simple technical fixes for complex problems, from holes in the wall to OLPC programs. After a brief interlude of HallMk1's deranged Maoist raving (love and kisses Rich ;-), I waffled about Project SOAR in a Pecha Kucha stylee (ePoster here):

Later I went to the launch of the Inclusion Accessability SIG, then dinner, some nice chats and an early night (after testing the Skype connection from my room with a borrowed ethernet cable for a conference presentation to Birmingham today). This is the life.
