  7. 7. “The Ebb and Flow of IWMW” 7 “IWMW for me is much more than a conference, it’s a community. And it’s a privilege to be a part of this community. Thank you.” Gareth Saunders, University of St Andrews
  8. 8. “IWMW – More Than Just a Community” The institutional web: • It’s not a race • We do not need to be the ‘best’ – our institutions are all very different But: • We may want to achieve a personal best • We can do this is a collaborative way 8 In 2006 Ian St John had no idea what the ‘IWMW’ was and didn’t give it a thought. Ten years later Ian feels that “IWMW is about the people you meet and network with on the social nights and who you become friends”
  9. 9. “In 1999 I was a freshly fledged World Wide Web Coordinator” 9 In 1999 Rob Bristow attended his first IWMW. He attended several further events but, due to lack of funding, has not attended since 2007. Rob “felt the loss of that stimulus and refreshment of my knowledge and interest. I felt like I missed the start of the whole Web 2.0 thing as a result“.
