Could you record the talk?
It's something I'd consider N.O.X, though in all honesty it's not top of my list at present. Having been out of the loop for a couple of years I'm busy trying to re-establish connections and the like, and my main concern at the moment is ensuring bums hit seats. They are doing which is great, and whilst I appreciate the frustration of folk who absolutely can't make the talks, my priority has to be with the people who can, and naturally the speaker also. I host the actual event, on the day, and that's where my efforts have to be concentrated. When I'm happy that DD is fully up and running and established again, it's something I'd certainly be looking at more closely. However, that's not to say it won't happen for David's talk, just that it's not at the forefront of my mind at the moment. I hope that makes some sense!
Hmmm I am very tempted to travel to Manchester.
I think you should Michael, David's last talk was fantastic and prompted some very lively Q&A! It's always good to see new faces up north and you'd be most welcome ~ just make sure you pack a mac!
Best wishes to your new event!
Many thanks Hecate, glad the Abbey event went so well, would've loved to have made it down!
