Not Happy - How Should We Make IPVM Online Shows Better?

Before I start my self-criticism, let me say, relative to other industry shows, I do think ours are great. Easy to attend, nicely integrated chat for discussions and getting questions answered, lots of presentations (we are at 370+ done plus recorded already), etc., etc.

But they have a number of problems:

    ...

    ** *** **** ***** point *** **** ******.
  • **** ********** ***** ** reading **** *****.
  • ** *** *** ****** enough ********* / ******* hard ******. *** **** presenter *********.
  • ** ****** ***** **** like **** ***** *** get **** ********** ******** to **** *** ************* more *********** *** ************.
  • **, **** ** *** have ** ***?

    ***, ** ******* **** memory ** ** *** have *** **** *** before,***** *** ** ***+ recordings** *** * ****:
