Social Networking vs. Conferences 2

Here's my question posed on Twitter: Will social networking make conferences passe?

Yesterday I posted what my Facebook friends said. Today, my Twitter friends. Your thoughts?

TeacherTim: @ChristineYJones Social networking is valuable and fun, but it can't shake a hand, give a hug, or shoot the breeze after a general session.

ChristineYJones: @TeacherTim Some say they find their quickest answers to challenges from peers. Will people grow tired of waiting for the next event?

TeacherTim: @ChristineYJones Interesting question. I'm finding that the "experts" at conferences are, in reality, "peers" I network with daily..

Matt McKee: RT @ChristineYJones Will social networking make conferences passe? // or will it only enhance the experience? Great question #kidmin

Larry Shallenberger: @mattmckee @ChristineYJones will enhance experience as long as conferences grow in interactivity., IMHO.

Christine: RT @LShallenberger: will enhance experience as long as conferences grow in interactivity., IMHO.///Explain interactivity.

Henry Zonio: RT @ChristineYJones Will social networking make conferences passe? // I like what http://theideacamp.com is doing with confs #kidmin

Christine: RT @henryjz: RT @ChristineYJones I like what http://theideacamp.com is doing with confs #kidmin///I love this, Henry!

Amy Dolan: @ChristineYJones yes! social networking will definitely tweak if not change confs-it provides a more personal way to learn.

Larry Shallenberger: @ChristineYJones I think R.E.A.L. learning that leverages social media (texting q's to speaker during session). etc.

Larry: @ChristineYJones look like the stuff you used at Group's Large Group Forum but on a larger scale and w/ tech gadgets for the early adopters.

Weigh in on the conversation. What needs to change about conferences in today's culture? Also, check out people's comments in the previous posting: Social Networking vs. Conferences.
