CTC 2005: Tuesday evening

After the sessions yesterday, the conference organisers arranged an excellent dinner, with RSVPs received via the conference wiki in true collaborative style ;-). The food has been amazing, way above the usual fare at these things. Anyway, tables were arranged along various birds-of-a-feather themes, and we were on the GEEC table: “Global Experts in Electronic Collaboration” (!), arranged by Michael Sampson. Indeed, Michael even has a picture for the brave…

Participants included Simon Barratt, Larry Cannell and Lars Plougmann. It was good to talk to Larry after attending his excellent presentation, Creating a Collaboration Strategy (650 Kb PDF).

Well we had fun, and indeed the GEEC table was the last one standing sitting, once we got going with the “how I became a GEEC/K” stories. A few beers followed with Messrs Barrow and Barratt. A splendid evening!


  1. Hey Ben, hopefully you are on your plane by now jetting over the pond. Good to meet you and John.

    Who was sheeding blood? and what over?

    All the best,
