Comment from (SEDA editor): "Controlled enthusiasm", "bribery" etc. in use of new technology, for 10-20 years. Now, OFSTED inspections, "how much do you use a VLE?" Teachers - they just have to do something with technology...

Response: - you have to justify, argue your case. "Resilient, don't just be compliant"

Another comment: "I'm very interested in [points about] risk taking and risk-aversion" (para-phrasing).

Para-phrasing: "How can you use the messy compost-heap of technology in HE." Risky for careers.

"Registrars would like us to compost over the front-gardens", "Tidy up"
