I wouldn't mind meeting some of the people who post here and have a few beers with them...could be beneficial all round but as I wrote I would prefer to have more time with perhaps an informal evening session followed by an all-day whatever.
After all it's a 100% tax deductible expense therefore we ought to make the most of it.
Interestingly about 11 years ago Adobe had a national roadshow presenting all their latest stuff. It was at an old English Tudor hall in the middle of nowhere about 30 minutes from Nottingham and it was PACKED with hundreds of up-and-coming Netpreneurs/designers/etc a few months before the dot com bubble burst if I remember correctly!
It was a fantastic day and certainly had an enormous effect on our thinking and our way forward.
