But, if I'm suggesting that conferences should head towards participation and F2F because more people are going to effectively get information through their PWLEs, then am I going to miss good topics like that talk. The closest equivalent are things like TED videos (which are always short and to the point). But more recently those videos have become more and more theoretical. I ran across a video on the topic of making a good presentation that was great. But, I still have this nagging worry that I would miss out if you didn't have keynotes on random, related topics.
Am I just being an Infovore and shouldn't worry about it?
Should I be seeking new information sources that will bring in random but related topics?
Where do you get this kind of information? How do you know to get it?
