I would appreciate if any of you who are going to use remote speakers, or are going to broadcast your user group meetings, could post the URL in here. We're considering trying either/both for our PASS Chapter and I'd like to see what the experience is like for the remote viewer.

I got the chance to catch most of Grant's presentation to Jason's group the other night. From a technology point of view, I was happy with how it worked. Great presentation too. I learned quite a bit about reading execution plans.


Grant,

What technology did you use? Other than "GOTO MEETING", I've never done a remote presentation before.


LiveMeeting. I've used it a bunch of times so far. It's very simple to share the desktop, video, voice. Works fine.

Curious, when you're presenting remotely folks don't have a webcam pointing at the crowd at all? Seems like that should be a gimme, otherwise you could be talking to yourself in a closet, which can get boring after an hour or two.


You can have a camera on the crowd, but honestly, I can't focus on that and what I'm saying at the same time. It's not like talking in person where I can work eye contact while I say something. Plus, if you're sharing your desktop, in order to look at the video of the people, the people are looking at the video of the people looking at the video of the people looking at the...

flipping recursion... where was I? Anyway, you get the idea.

I'd certainly like to try it with a camera on the crowd. I did one remote one for the Charlotte group and struggled to present to an empty room.

Attn: all User Group presentation coordinators. I've been working on converting my article on Comparing Table Variables with Temporary Tables into a presentation. If you're interested in having me do a remote presentation, PM me. Just be forewarned - it's been many years since I've given presentations, so I'm sure that the first few will show how rusty I am with this. I can provide a PP slidedeck and code samples to enable you to decide, if necessary

I'm pretty sure we all feel the same disappointment about the PASS decision and the same confusion about the reason given.

Wise move in not making any further comments. There's probably nothing beneficial that can be said at this time.

I'm pretty sure that the PASS decision does not reflect the feelings of the majority of PASS members.

Hang in there. WE are still behind you!!

Steve, you have rabid fan group all willing to be whipped up into vicious mob mentality. Take advantage of it.

(have us raid the Nerds factory or something)

My condolences on the issue. I do hope you run again.

PASS' loss. I'm shocked. It is their loss and they probably don't realize it.

I've been considering joining PASS for a while and getting more involved with the community. This seals the deal for me not to join PASS. An organization that cannot take a little criticism from a revered community leader isn't and organization I want to associate with.
