Here is a little of what I grabbed in the Hutton Theatre today. We have more professionally recorded video and audio in the works. It will be available here soon.
Predictably, we had trouble getting an open space happening at first. The Internet was down when we wanted to start so we asked poor Teemu to get up and present MobilEd from his computer. Teemu delivered an almost 1 hour talk (not quite open space we know). By the end of it we had Internet. We then went back to what we originally proposed - short intros from everyone who wanted to talk about their work, then groups merging in on projects of interest to them.
From then on there was a buzz in the air. Lots of long, in depth conversations, going on past lunch time, then field trips out to local schools, departments and faculties.
I'm pretty pleased with how it has all ended up. This open space conference worked :)
