Incidentally, the Emerge project is a JISC funded project exploring the use of web 2.0 for collaboration. It goes without saying that they’re running Elgg as the platform.
The University of Brighton funded development of the presentation tool we’ve been conceptualising for the last year. It’s now in testing, and we’ve uploaded it on this site for you to try out.

This isn’t a usual kind of post for me, but an old friend of mine just nudged me because he is seeking new employment.
If anyone’s after a first-rate programmer whose CV contains just about anything you could wish for (PDF), Marcus comes with a very high personal recommendation from me. He’s got extensive experience in both the private and public sector, from commerce through health to education.
Check out his CV; contact details are at the top of the PDF.
