Home Comfort

In the last couple of years, I really had cut down on the number of overseas conference I attended. It was due to the combination of lack of sponsorship as well as fear of international travel which played a role.

But with webinar and webcast becoming commonplace, I didn’t really felt left behind or out of date. Last week, one of the Pharmaceutical Company had a talk in Penang and the talk was beamed across on the net live. In the comfort of my home, I was able to enjoy the talk.

Dr Leong asking the questions on the other end ...The only drawback would be there would be no free dinner afterwards and also there was no chance for networking. But that was a small matter. The webcast was clear through the internet - they used GoToMeeting for this one - all in HD.

We also had the chance to ask question or chat if we wanted but the talk was rather long in the end. I am all for this in the future ...
