Sadly, they have chosen a video stream format that requires the Adobe Flash Player, which is a known security issue. A number of well respected major vendors in the internet industry have suggested that Adobe terminate this software because the problems are so persistent (over many years and versions) and there is no longer any need for it. There are other, better, secure ways to stream video.

Well, format security issues aside, the content was interesting.
I didn't make ANY of the forums this year. Just didn't get around to them.
So, Paul, thanks for posting the link. I enjoyed watching the video.

The panelists seemed to "get it", and understand the need to work together and interact more.
It also interesting that the more vocal members of the audience didn't quite understand that.
