Out here in the blogosphere we’re all hip innovative and linky and open and caring. But when we go to conferences we sit in uncomfortable chairs in bland auditoria and to let keynote speakers talk at us. Why?
While I’m not a big one for talk of “silence journeys” and “questing paths” (okay, I made those up), their central premise — traditional conferences are a bore and don’t really work all that well at getting people to collaborate — is bang on.
As a special bonus you get to hear Rob’s claim that podcasting was invented at Zap Your PRAM.
