I have seen several of these things. Always a letdown. There's a quality to ftf that simply can't done via teleconferencing. I think it is a total waste of precious Extropy resources to get into this. Most of these things were more about "Gee whiz, ain't we on the cutting edge" I don't need it, and spend the money on airfare for a good speaker or something. The same money could produce an excellent Web site on the conference for all to enjoy.....
