The MoodleMoot in Ireland just finished with lots of interesting news. They did many 6-minute Lightning Talks that they called "Pecha Kucha" (日本の文化どこでも、ね). Here are about forty blog links, and here is a good summary by one participant from Czech: http://techczech.net/2012/04/08/10-things-i-learned-at-the-moodle-moot-2012/
Martin talked about Moodle 2.3. It is coming in June and I welcome the improvements!
