Grant-obtaining wizards: I need your help!

I'd like to run a hack day for Numbas, the maths e-assessment software we make at Newcastle. Since Numbas users are spread all over the world, and Newcastle is hours from anywhere, we'll probably need to pay people's travel expenses to get here.

I'm sure there must be a funding body somewhere that would give us some money to help out with covering costs for the day, but I'm not sure who. One or more of the LMS grant schemes could probably be persuaded to cover it, but I'm not sure which. I'll talk to our LMS rep, but it'd be good if I could hear from someone else who's run a computery event with LMS funding.

Apart from the LMS, where else should I look? Jisc seems to have transcended temporal concerns, and I don't think the IMA is appropriate. I'd expect the HEA to have a million requirements in return for a tiny grant.

How well are we tracked? Malte Spitz asked Deutsche Telekom to hand over 6 months worth of data from his phone and now we can see the movie unfold by pressing play.

I for one, agree completely with Marco Arment.
#RSS is still strong. Same old story, why #Twitter when we have #Atom?
Why IMs when we have #IRC?

Officially, Google killed Reader because “over the years usage has declined”. 1 I believe that statement, especially if API clients weren't considered “usage”, but I don't belive that's the entire reason. The most common assumption I've seen others cite is that “Google couldn't figure out how to ...
