20 August 2021 (Friday) - BBTS Conference

The BBTS sent me an invite to their annual conference today. I am *incredibly* cynical about this sort of thing. Whilst in theory there are all sorts of lectures and symposia being presented, for so many years this sort of this was just an excuse for a big party with your old mates in works’ time and at works’ expense.

Have things changed nowadays? I hope so, but at two hundred and fifty quid (plus accommodation costs) it’s a bit steep. I can’ help but think that far more could be achieved by presenting all the lectures as podcasts, and those who want a party can sort one out for themselves.
