Some good journalism. Maybe a few too many excuses.
I missed DAC this year, so I appreciated the
article greatly. One thing missing was an analysis of
the apparently declining attendance. Can (or should) this
be reversed? Do we need big meetings, live, in
the shadowy world of the living web?
I really don't think the heat wave was a concern to those
meeting in air-conditioned meeting rooms, or travelling
in air-conditioned trains. What did it add?
And, so far as the violence in the Middle East is concerned,
why bother with it in a DAC opinion article?
Unending war has been a way of life in those parts for centuries;
it's described in the Bible back to about 1000 BC; so, why should
it be considered newsworthy? The number of active participants
so far has been less than this year's DAC attendance. Let them be.
One side thinks it's still 800 BC; the other, 800 AD. They'll just
continue to cancel to a big ZERO, peacewise, until they learn better.
The concern expressed in the DAC article did nothing to help anyone
and should be taken for granted as shared by any civilized person.
