Looking forward to the Bob Dylan at 80 Virtual Conference This Weekend


This online conference starts on Saturday and ends on Monday, May 24th which is Dylan's 80th birthday.  The pandemic has necessitated numerous conferences to go online.  For me, the advantages of this conference going online are that I save time and money by not having to travel to Tulsa and pay for airfare, hotel, and food.  Over the past year, I have attended many 1-2 hour conferences online, but this will be the first time that I will attend a long conference with events from 9:30 AM - 10:30 PM.  Th disadvantages are:

  1. Having to sit for hours at a time at a computer screen.  I guess anyone's rear end can get sore after sitting for hours.
  2. There are always distractions while staying at home.  I will likely be tempted to leave my computer to watch the Mets or do errands that are essential
The entire event will be delivered through Microsoft Teams with almost all sessions streamed using as Microsoft Live events.  All events will be archived so they may be viewed at a future date.  I think I will take advantage of that option.
