   London covers a huge area, and I feel that there is a need for many local
hands-on groups with easy access for all, even if carrying hardware and/or
disabled, but we can not expect specialist experts to visit them all so
there will still be a need for the kind of central facilities offered by the
University of Westminster. I have been trying to get something started in
West London, but the only response so far has been plenty of lip service but
very little understanding. Many people with influence (I recently attended a
local council Scrutiny Panel meeting) simply do not understand why Microsoft
Only facilities are not useful.
