    will a transcript be made available for those who are unable to attend?

    (I should be able to make it, just wondering)

    I’m curious if anyone else has problems using WebEx on a Mac. I’ve never had a successful WebEx session on Mac (or Linux) and this appears to be no different.

    I can’t be the only one. Can I?

    (After event) Hey, that was fun John. I would have liked to see other attendees names and the incoming questions to get more interaction and more of a conference feel, but overall I think this approach has a lot of potential. I went to a lot of “real” conferences last year, but this year I’m trying to hear the same people and attend similar events … in the virtual space. I’d like to see more of these.

    I must say I’m pretty disappointed with the Webex experiment. It’s very “Web Backwards”.

    As with John, above, I tried to replay the event on my Linux machine, and while I saw the slides there was no audio.

    Why do I need a special client? Why can’t it “just work” like YouTube and Google videos with flash, which is widely deployed on Mac, Windows and Linux machines? Why do I need to install a proprietary client that may or may not work?

    To add insult to injury, after a half-functional replay then “Justin” from Webex starts spamming me by phone and by email.

    I didn’t ask for information from Webex, and I didn’t ask to be contacted. Why send unsolicited emails and phone messages? Spam is very uncool and “Web Backwards”.
