iMotion - even the slower ones can do it!

Did this at lunchtime today, my tip for anyone trying to do this is to download the remote onto your iphone too, what a huge difference it makes.

Do i work in a dangerous office or what?

There are policies in place for volunteers and signed by partners as part of the overall initiative contract, these should be signed by all volunteers. This should be preceded by specific sessions stating what is required of volunteers in terms of safe and appropriate useage.

A specific part of delivery to groups in taster sessions must focus on security. Volunteers and staff must be aware of Communities 2.0 policies as they use equipment from the project.

Project Manager must examine the Policies employed by partners and hence staff working on the initiative.
