[seul-edu] [Fwd: FW: New National Grid for Learning portal goes live]

For various reasons Chris can't submit the announcement himself at
the moment; would one or another of our UK members please do so?
Send the announcement off to them using William's admonitions
(apologize for not including them in the initial round of media
contacts, etc.) and list yourself as a local contact.  Maybe you can
get all the fame and glory that goes with being a Schoolforge
spokesman!  Well, there's little fame and less glory, but you can
make a name for yourself as an endearing but
occasionally annoying eccentric, as I have.
