What a modern meeting should be like...

As you can see, we are following our tradition of trying to blog in as near realtime as we can, from the Matrikon Summit 2007. This is a little harder than it was last week, though, because for really good reasons (Marriott thinks they can make real money selling wireless in the meeting room, like $100 per attendee-chair per day) Matrikon hasn't provided high speed wireless in the room. I have fallen back on my trusty Blackberry, this time with high speed modem connection...which is only really high speed by courtesy. It beats nothing at all, but only barely. Gary Mintchell and I were talking earlier about what a modern meeting should be like. The meeting room should have a big wireless pipe, or better yet, an Ethernet connection at each place, and power at each place in the room so that we can all use our laptops, and follow along with the meeting presenters on their pre-distributed slides. This, at least partly, worked fine at WBF, and I heartily recommend it for anybody who is running a meeting.
