When you say "it's time to gather around some great speakers (virtually or
in person) and talk distributed systems" are you saying some of the *
speakers* will be virtual, or is there a way for us to actually watch the
talks virtually? That's something I'd pay for, even though I can't attend
the conference in person.

Cheers,

Dave
