The virtual summit was made available to those who were unable to attend the on-site Summit but were interested in participating in the dialogue. The Virtual Summit began with live streaming video webcasts of a number of the presentations, continued with on-demand video archives of all of the speakers, and extended the conversation with the speakers beyond the Summit through moderated discussion forums.
Live Video Schedule: Monday, December 7th, 2009
Presentations available via live webcast take place on Monday morning from 8:25 to 8:55 and Monday afternoon from 1:20 to 2:35. Click on the Live Video link to view the active stream.

Join the Conversation:
The day after the on-site Summit closes, a 5-day web event begins. Several of the speakers will be available to respond to virtual participants questions and comments about the presentations or related issues. The easy-to-use text-based forums have a new feature that allows participants to view the video and mark the part of the presentation they would like to discuss. The forum is open to the public, but to reduce the risk of spamming, posts will not appear until approved by a moderator. The interactive web event begins on the morning of 12/09/09 and closes on the evening of 12/13/09. Afterward, the archived discussions will remain available for viewing. Discussants and topics include:
