eTel cancelled, but check this!


K, so this is a bit out there but I figured what the heck…

How about a virtual conference. One where speakers address a real audience via the Internet using video, teleconferencing, presence (twitter, pownce), IM etc.

There would be a virtual hall that allowed users to navigate from session to session where they would watch or just listen via teleconference.

We could create a back-channel (they all exists anyways during these shows) and a real social networking element that could serve as method for hallway discussions?

We have the technology now to pull this off, this should be a no-brainer!

Make people PAY for it (cover the costs), in return they will get recordings of all the sessions and access to the chat back-channels.

Call me a geek but I think this would be cool would cost people much less and would likely be more a productive use of everyone's time.

There is a Facebook group coming together that might help the idea along or email me and tell me how nuts I am: erik (at) sipthat dot com.

    Alot of bloggers aren’t really happy with the new iPad.There was too much hype about it and alot people got turned off.Thing is, I actually see great deal of the awesome potential uses of this gadget. Third-party soft for making tunes, games, newsprints and magazine and books, all kinds of awesome stuff, but IMHO they failed to sell it properly (excluding the books). It looks kind of not finished
