Jill Tivey and I have just been to have a look round the Informatics Forum. I’ve been to several events there over the last couple of years and know the building quite well. But there are things you need to know as an event organiser that you wouldn’t necessarily find out about as a participant (where the first aid kit is kept for example – though I do hope we don’t have any cause to use it!) so it was good to get the ‘behind the scenes’ tour.
Thanks go to Ronnie Johnston, School of Informatics Events Co-ordinator, for showing us round, and for hosting the event in the first place. It’s particularly appreciated as Informatics is currently hosting a massive conference (FLoC2010).
These guys out geek us by a mile and then some BTW. Check out http://www.floc-conference.org/floc-about.html and you’ll see what I mean!
