Thoughts over the OC School concept

As it seems to be, these OC School events appear to be on invitation only bases. Some might say that it could have been cool to open up a little more the schools to more participants but hey, lets not complain and salute the initiative!

Events like this are always a good way to give a little kick to the community :) Then it is our role to make sure that the fresh overclocking blood that comes out of these schools doesn’t forget about what they have learned and keep pushing it at home !

What do you think? Share your thoughts about such events! Would you like to have an OC School tour in you country?
