It’s really interesting to hear where is event concept heading, and what are the actual values driving that – pure content is obviously not in the first plan any more.
I think people are nowadays buying experience over content.

New information seems to move too fast for a conference to lean on one-way content going forward. I always find myself bummed that I missed a conference only to see all the talks show up on youtube within a week.

Moz does something interesting w/ their conference content. They essentially bundle it all together and sell it for a flat price: http://moz.com/mozcon-videos

Much like every other industry today, conferences can’t ignore technological trends. It’s changing the way we communicate and do business. Leveraging event tech while keeping an open mind towards new revenue streams has to be the mindset.

Unfortunately, most webinar current products still perpetuate the old broadcast model, making the “viewers” second class citizens who are barely able to participate in any meaningful sense.

Adrian, I’d venture to guess that eventually the same expectations will drive online events to be more participatory too. Currently the webinar with limited Q&A still reigns supreme, but hopefully it’s days are numbered.

You’ll need to sit very quietly for 90 minutes as I read the text on the slides. 🙂

We are both recovering from the shame-centered education we (and, likely, almost everyone) received in our youth. Perhaps we should start EA: Education Anonymous! You have described many aspects of what you & I have in common in our goals for working with a group of people.

Here is one big lesson I learned: If I stand up in front of a crowd and say “I know more than you do,” it doesn’t matter what he value of that knowledge is, because it creates a greater negative impact of a de facto “shaming experience.” It implies that the audience is a lower order of being. While some people put up with this, like turnpike tolls, “I have to get talked down to/ pay this time/money /do this unpleasant thing in order to get certified/ get to where I want to go,” absent some gatekeeping power to force people to take certain classes, the idea that one can live as a fountain of information just doesn’t work any more. But I had to transcend/heal past all the shaming *I* went thru in order to rise above that hierarchical model, and that was not about information, it was about a healing process. My biggest issue these days is not “what I know,” as it turns out someone else figured it all out before, it is in managing the exchange and coordination of that information, as the language we currently have is very fractured, and it is our emotional fragility and issues of trust (again, shame issues) preventing teamwork, not the availability of solutions, that is the real issue. And you kinda sorta need to do that in person.
