Talk about not getting the concept. And how un-green can you get?
Some organization is running an event called the Cloud Computing Expo in New York in April. As you would expect, registrants -- including journalists and analysts -- can sign up through the cloud.
But that's the end of it. It doesn't appear that the Cloud Computing event can be attended via the cloud.
And when a journalist arrives at the Cloud event, the organization says:
All Preregistered Press and Onsite Press Registrants will be required to present:
Please present a printed copy of your online publication with your name and title visible.
- a copy of your business card with name, editorial title and media's logo,
- a copy of a current masthead which includes your name and editorial title.
So, in other words, for everyone that wants to know about the wonderful new virtual world that is dawning, which will reduce costs and save the planet by reducing the need to travel and to produce reams of paper, come talk to some guys that still use business cards.
Oh, and bring a "printed copy" of your online publication. Think about that sentence.
