I live on the East Coast, so the inconvenience was minor. Still, I
sympathise with our friends on the West Coast.
I found the conference very rewarding.

I was involved in the organization of putting
on-line in April. The original venue was Edmonton, which is on Mountain
Time. We found that starting at 11:00 Eastern time worked well for us.
Those in India and points east had to stay up a bit late, but none
complained about it. Our days were also about four hours long.

I think this on-line forum is worth repeating. The meetecho tool works
quite well. My compliments to the organizers!

Kind regards,
