YOUR COMMENTS It was great to network and I really enjoyed that aspect. You had time built into the schedule for that and it was great to see everyone talking and sharing. What a great group of people. Ive attended ALL of the workshops! I am an ETUGGER for LIFE Try to develop the ETUG website as a place where we can keep these f2f connections going. Perhaps focused synchronous online sessions combined with focus discussions (kind of like like SCOPE) to attract & keep people at the site? Networking & reconnecting with colleagues is always SHARE valuable. I did feel a bit trapped with only a single YOUR IDEA stream of sessions. in the comment area
