Aside: Congratulations all - our small charity event raised £86 for Comic Relief 
(for those in the States this is a big UK charity thing organised through the BBC http://www.comicrelief.com/  and our money went a long way towards helping their total of over £57m so far (likely to be above £70m)! (well every bit counts) http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7939425.stm  )

This was part of the ACM SIGGRAPH Manchester Professional Chapter (ACM Special Interest Group in Graphics)
We are now putting together ideas for the last part of this and for next year.


There have been 48 different events over the years (summarised above), virtually all video conferenced through the AG (sorry again for some, copyright meant that the last one could not be)

**** Request to ALL ****

- Looking for interesting related speakers who are going to be in the environs of Manchester (UK), 
 - or presenters who would like to transmit by video conferencing through the Access Grid.

Yours Martin

PS Thanks to our sponsors but also looking for new ones.
