Hi, my name is Andy Wooler, better know to many as Ned Flanders from The Simpsons! Based on the coast in Hove, my musical life includes MD of Mid Sussex Brass, playing whatever is needed in Uckfield Concert Brass, Trumpet and Chairman of the Sussex Symphony Orchestra and webmaster for the SCABA website. However, none of this pays so my day job is as a Global eLearning Manager for Royal SunAlliance. (until mid October when redundancy kicks in ). A great job which finds me currently enjoying the heatwave in Saratoga Springs, NY. (hence the 2am post!). In a strange coincidence, my meeting today was discussing the value and effectiveness of on-line communities as a learning tool - tMP is a fine example of how a community can be built using web based technologies and I would encourage all newcomers to get actively involved!
