Yup, Online Educa is about to start here in Berlin. The preparations are being made in the main plenary venue for the opening address by David Puttnam and others. Twittering on the event can be found at #oeb2009 - get good updates, if you speak Dutch! Each year there's rivalry to see which country (apart from Germany) sends the greatest number of participants and usually a two-way race between the UK and the Netherlands. Interesting to see if budget cuts knock out the UK this year or not.
