Advantages of of Following the Sun?

Learning globally online

“Virtual conference protocol: It's beneficial (and not rude) to (text) chat while the presenter is talking (voice, video and slides). I learnt the ropes to multi-converse -- following many text threads while listening; and observed how a skilled moderator/chair could pick up on these conversation threads to interject public questions. 09/12/2010

The comparison…

“I preferred the live presentations; even at 10 PM to 2 AM time here in Japan The festival was very good though and I thoroughly enjoyed the live presentations and then chatting afterwards- actually more engaging than being at a physical conference.”
