Happy New Year and thanks (again) for help with the survey

Happy New Year (this was supposed to be an end of year round up message but you know how these things go. ORIOLE plans to be a tad more lively in the next few months and I hope to catch up with people face-to-face at the OCWC/OER11 conference in Cambridge (UK) in March. I'll be demonstrating some of the outputs from ORIOLE there and have just been co-opted with Tim Seal (SCORE) to help plan a post-conference event at the OU on the 19th (i.e. the following day). So if you are planning to go to Cambridge and have the following day free put in a tentative visit to the OU in Milton Keynes (transport will be laid on). Further details will follow shortly.

So much happening in the world of Open Resources and I hope to get more information pushed out from the ORIOLE survey over the next few months. I'll be working on this with SCORE fellows Joanna Wild (Oxford University) and Ming Nie (University of Leicester). Now that we have a (mostly) full set of this we can also disperse the donations to the survey participants' three most nominated charities. These were

Cancer Research UK Registered Charity No1089464
Macmillan Cancer Support Registered Charity No261017
Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) Registered Charity No261017

These each receive a £100 donation. Thanks for helping that to happen.
