David Muir did a sterling job and wrote up two posts live on the night, and no doubt others will follow shortly. I am not going to do the same, to be honest I didn’t take most of it in as I was riding along on a wave of excitement. I have however put together a quick post about what I talked about in my 7 minutes.
John Johnston, Scotland’s premier edu-aggregator, has already set up a page that will collate all tweets, flickr posts, delicious links, and blog posts. This depends on you tagging all your stuff with tmxi, so please add that to anything you post about last night.
It was awesome to see so many people come from so far away, as I say about 30 people were there in person, with notable mentions for distance travelled going to Theo Kuechel, Andy McSwan, and Louise Jones. It was great that everyone came along and made it such a good night by contributing and by pitching in. As ever it was the people who made the night, and it was really nice to put some faces to names I’ve been in touch with for ages online but not in person.
As well as the people there in person, an amazing number of people watched the event live through the flashmeeting, when I looked in there were 17 people there and I know more people popped in and out throughout the evening. You can go and watch the flashmeeting again, and at the time of writing it has already been watched an incredible 56 times!
Again, a huge thanks to everyone who came along and made the night what it was, I really enjoyed myself and am so glad I stepped up in September and decided that we’d have a teachmeet down in the Scottish Borders. I have to make special mention to Liz Marroni for arranging the venue for us and for getting the unfiltered internet access.
I am now looking forward to the next edition – maybe it will be TeachMeet Extreme-North edition? I think Louise Jones volunteered to sort out our trip to Aviemore, but maybe we should make the journey that bit further and go and visit Sinclair in Thurso?
