[Owasp-leaders] Virtual Conferences?

1. I suspect that this model would be more difficult to attract
sponsorship. Facetime has a lot higher value that virtual erodes
2. Virtual allows for remote attendees to attend presentations which is
good, but the real reason I attend conferences is to network with other
attendees which is more challenging in this model.
3. If given the opportunity to attend at work, I would probably end up
paying attention less and multitasking which would reduce its value.
4. Timezones would be an issue

Subject: [Owasp-leaders] Virtual Conferences?

After doing the NYC 2008 OWASP event that had over 750 people, I learned
a lot and found new respect about the hard work that it takes to
organize a conference. Kudos to Dave Wichers, Jeff Moss, Bruce Potter
and other conference organizers world wide, its not easy.

I am throwing an idea out there that I would like global feedback of the
OWASP-LEADERS list members of this list.

Would you attend a OWASP event/training was virtual?

I am currently researching http://www.inxpo.com for this purpose.

If you have never seen what they do in 2D no client click:

We simply need some demographic information on this topic so I can
prioritize efforts.


Thanks in advance.
