Dear all,

thank you for the positive and supportive feedback. This may be a good  
occasion to thank all those from the OURMedia network who helped  
organise this event but then couldn't come for different reasons --  
particularly Dorothy who was very involved with the planning at the  
beginning and arranged the first meeting with the Dublin-based groups  
back in December.

There will be more news from the second day of the conference, I'm  
sure, and feedback on the overall event, but now many of us are very  
busy with the IAMCR conference that started this morning. The feedback  
from participants here is that the second day was as interesting and  
valuable as the first day, included great presentations and led to  
some new collaborations. There are always lots of things that could be  
done better and lots to learn for future events, of course, but that's  
for another time... maybe for the planning process towards the next  
event for which there are already a few ideas...
