Not entirely a fair comparison - the online science talks were a lunchtime
workshop, so there were only a couple of other things running in parallel,
while the regular talks had 9 sessions running at the same time.
I chatted to one person about your talk later in the day, but she wasn't
convinced. Essentially, the concern was 'What if we want to get further
analysis & publications from the data?' I know this has come up before, but
as you noted, your message was largely new to this audience. I think the
'Citation' section of the talk was probably the part that resonated most
with the audience.
> I noted many of the audience were taking notes with pen & paper... bit
ironic for such a 'digital' session IMO.
Pen & paper haven't stopped working. ;-)
Thanks for your talk,
