To TNC or not TNC?

I have to dash back tomorrow morning and so miss the remainder of the conference. Was just pondering – really great streaming of all sessions, well done, but why did I spend 550 euros, plus plane, hotel, meals, car park etc to come when I could have had all of it for free and stayed at home?Sure there’s the sun (very welcome), the chance to see a few people, the socialising – but in these days of ‘value’ do delegates really get value from this conference when all of the content can be had on line.Maybe the organisers might consider just how wise it is to be so generous with the live streaming. Sure stream the plenaries but everything? Just beacuse you can doesn’t mean its always a good idea it seems to me…
