Here are my thoughts:<div><br></div><div>Pros:</div><div>- Cost Effective: no traveling, no hotels</div><div>- Cheaper fees: probably online would be cheaper or even free?</div><div>- More visibility as more people would be encouraged to attend</div>
<div>- Time Effective: I can pick and choose and do other stuff while I am attending</div><div><br></div><div>Cons:</div><div>- No networking but that would be OK to gain all the above</div><div><br></div><div>Regards,</div>

I just &quot;attended&quot; a Microsoft Tech day virtual event.  You were able to<br>
register for as many sessions as you can attend that went throughout the<br>
entire day.  <a href="http://www.msfttechdays.com/public/home.aspx" target="_blank">http://www.msfttechdays.com/public/home.aspx</a> Another venue that<br>
may be an interesting twist is to host a virtual conference in SecondLife.<br>
I&#39;ve attended Java training in SecondLife, <a href="https://slx.sun.com/1179270524" target="_blank">https://slx.sun.com/1179270524</a><br>
which was cool and useful.<br>

Subject: [Owasp-leaders] Virtual Conferences?<br>
<br>
After doing the NYC 2008 OWASP event that had over 750 people, I<br>
learned a lot and found new respect about the hard work that it takes<br>
to organize a conference. Kudos to Dave Wichers, Jeff Moss, Bruce<br>
Potter and other conference organizers world wide, its not easy.<br>
<br>
I am throwing an idea out there that I would like global feedback of<br>
the OWASP-LEADERS list members of this list.<br>
<br>
Would you attend a OWASP event/training was virtual?<br>
<br>
I am currently researching <a href="http://www.inxpo.com" target="_blank">http://www.inxpo.com</a> for this purpose.<br>
<br>
If you have never seen what they do in 2D no client click:<br>

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