While meeting prior to the NCeSS Conference, I recall debate as to what provision we should make for wireless laptops, and the debate about whether to provide wireless or not. In the end, in anticipation of rabid protests if we didn’t provide it, we did ensure wireless was available. It is interesting to read Digital Urban’s post on this – this is the blog run by GeoVUE. Should laptops be banned in conferences? I’m firmly in the yes camp – if you make an effort to go to a talk, you should also make the effort to be respectful to the speaker and not check out train times or places to eat… thoughts?
Aside of this gripe, I feel the conference has been a great success. As ever, I wish there was more time to follow up - it seems a shame to meet someone, have a great meeting of minds and then have to follow up by email.
