I would like to echo the already positive feedback to this idea. I do think
that this type of format would work well with multiple formats (panel,
keynote, and even workshop type presentations).  I can speak for our members
here in Atlanta that they also seem to enjoy the various options and formats
for meeting events and would attend.  I think that since it is virtual, a
greater degree of marketing would be involved compared to events that
require physical presence since those events force individuals to make more
preparatory efforts (travel, time off work, etc).

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.
