Topic: Review and assess the Virtual TC Meeting

The TC meeting of Spring 2013 was not held in any location but instead was a virtual meeting. Apparently the Planning Committee thought it would be a good idea in terms of participants and costs savings.

The meeting has now taken place and, as is to be expected of new experiments, the returns were mixed. Many people liked the convenience, many folk missed the direct interaction, people felt the participation and energy were lower.

Some feedback was provided on the TC-Discuss list:

The Planning Committee might consider a hybrid model whereby a TC was held simultaneously in several venues. Travel would be reduced, contacts could be made among the local groups, and sessions could be held jointly, by virtual connection, between venues.
