MacVoices #21063: MacVoices Live! - In-Person vs. Online Conferences and Meetings (3)

published 1 month ago by Chuck Joiner

Our look at the anniversary of Lockdown wraps up with a change in direction. The panel of Jim Rea, Jay Miller, Jeff Gamet, Frank Petrie, David Ginsburg, Guy Serle, Brittany Smith, and Andrew Orr finishes off the discussion of Zoom meetings, then turn their attention to larger events. The pros and cons of online and in-person conferences are debated. Will an online component of future events become a requirement? Will we ever go back to the way it was? Do we really want it to go back? To no one's surprise, CES and WWDC enter into the conversation.
