    Zoom this and Zoom that. Oddly enough I find that I'm not that excited by the prospect of five days in front of a laptop.

    ditto that Mark, but we have 30 days access to the recordings of all presentations other than the networking clinics.

    I put it up on the big screen TV (AirPlay is great!); much more comfortable. Relax in a comfortable chair with an appropriate beverage and it's good. I almost never watch TV so sitting down in front of the tube for several hours is quite the novelty.

    Received an email with a $10 off coupon for the event. According to the email the coupon code is "Maple". The email implied we could give out the code.

    I am registered. Got home from work today and watched a couple of the preliminary Tuesday prerecorded sessions. Most are 15 -30 minutes. Just click and it plays. My 2-cents after surfing around the virtual conference platform? Very professional and I'm looking forward to the rest of the demos this week. Love the fact you can watch them at your convenience and MUCH better than the typical Zoom platform. Excellent lineup of demonstrators too.

    I really had a ball today meeting all the woodturners in the interactive workshops and video one on one sessions. This format is fresh and exciting. Sorry, nothing like the dread of the zoom sessions that some of you experience.

    Disappointed, if you mean I can’t watch after the fact. I’ll be on the road and you are the main reason I signed on. :(

    All those demos and you don’t even have to leave you’re shop. This a Covid hasn’t all been bad!

    At the WW symposium last night, I enjoyed a Demonstration by Emiliano of the "Hawaiian" Calabash Bowl. His presentation of the history behind the bowl infused with the passion for his culture and woodturning combined to make a heartfelt IRD.
    It was good seeing all the lastest woodturning tool ideologies in action.

    Emiliano puts on an exceptional Interactive Remote Demo. Informative, educational, funny, keeps that banter going to keep you attentive. All elements that a good demonstrator should possess.

    I 'attended' one of Emiliano's IRD sessions a few weeks back, and watched his symposium demo this morning. It is clear he is passionate about his work, and does a good job of sharing that passion with his audience.
