A big “thank you”!

Still floating back to earth after “Mash Oop North”!

We’ll try and pull together the various delegate blog posts in the coming days but, first of all, lets do some “thank you”s 🙂

I’d like to thank…

  • My colleagues (Andrew, Bryony, Graham, Iman, Lisa, Tanya and Zoë) for helping plan and organise the event. Although my name seems to be appearing in the #mashlib09 tweets, the event was a group effort and they should all get the glory!
  • All of the opening session speakers — Brian Kelly, Iman Moradi, Brendan Dawes, Richard Wallis, Tony Hirst, and Mike Ellis
  • All of the event sponsors — to Talis for letting us lay on some great food, to Facet Publishing, UKOLN, Emerald Publishing, CILIP Y&H and the JISC Mosaic Project for sponsoring prizes, to CILIP Y&H and Copac/Mimas for sponsoring 8 students to attend the event, and to Nicole Harris for sponsoring the post event buffet at the Head of Steam.
  • Our colleagues in the Creative Arts Building for letting us invade their space for day.
  • Last, but certainly not least, all of the delegates — without you, it wouldn’t have been an event at all!

The day is still just a hectic blur in my head of things going wrong, so I’m really not the best person to judge whether the event was a success or a failure. Certainly some things worked better than others, and I’m sure the former will get fed into the planning for the next event.
