Michael Wills, Minister for Learning and Technology wrote the forward to the
brochure and was supposed to be giving the presentation but was delayed at
the House of Commons so you could try e-mailing him!. The contact for the
DfEE in the list of exhibitors was Wayne Prevost Tel 0207 273 5237 (no
e-mail). Copies of the brochure can be obtained from DfEE quoting ref:

ho ho ho,
do you think anyone from the Open Source, tier2 hardware league would have
been 'invited', i think not. i'll find out what the arrangements are, but
is also an expensive thing to attend....
perhaps an alternative 'open source' roadshow would be better, i'll hire
bus if you want....

something we would definitely be interested in being involved with given
the choice - does the brochure give a relevant contact person?
