Oh, come on, would anybody really be stupid enough to try to get LJ to write JISC funding bids for them.....? ah. OK. :-}

See, we had some cool stuff we wanted to get funding for, but it doesn't really fit into any of the JISC categories. But that particular category -- well, anything we could possibly do in that area is guaranteed to be ace fun & useful to lots of people, & would probably feed into the other cool stuff we want to do anyway. So we are 'brainstorming', but the people here whose brains are most full of teh useful are too busy to allocate much time for brainstorming, so I thought some fresh brains to storm might be a good idea. Braaiiiiiiins.

I understand completely and think it's a good idea - I just couldn't help laughing as I was reading through that call the other day half-wondering whether there anything fun that we could ask for money for. In practice however I don't think that I'm likely to propose anything myself for various reasons, though no doubt there will be an OU bid of some description.

Where are you working these day? I've lost track - I'm sorry! You never know, there could be potential collaboration opportunities :)

I'm at OUCS, but Information Services rather than the Learning/Teaching/Research/etc sections...

Ah *think* all the people I've come across (Liz, Marion, Adam etc) are in the learning technology group I also get confused with of the Oxford people are in OUCS and which are in other parts!
