Do you ever go back in to pick up where you left off in a conference session? That's the beauty of archiving. Do you see this format gaining ground?

I have been doing virtual conferences for a year. The big plusses are no travel, good discussions and technical talks, and a variety of vendors to choose from. Invariably there is one vendor I have never heard of that is quite interesting. The downside is that other work intrudes and so sometimes I miss a conference session or have to break off a conversation.
