  1. Interesting – a keynote on collaboration – another keynote on co- production – no sign of the co-producers or the collaborators sharing the platform – it’s the same old story I suspect – powerful people talking to other powerful people about less powerful people –

    I for one will not be there – I don’t think I could handle that much fun!
