RE: Slides, eye charts, and a beg for readability

Well,
 
I do think that if the slides were available to be posted ahead of time, the 
chairs could make sure they are appropriate, sufficiently few in number, in the 
right font, etc., and the participants who want to could look at the slides in 
advance.
 
To be honest, posting slides ahead of time is not rocket science and wen it 
doesn't happen it is often (barring the usual excuses) pretty unprofessional.
 
Am I being overly smug?

Aren't all the slides posted in the meeting materials at least 24 hours ahead 
of time to allow us to download them, use our own preferred tools, struggle 
with English not being our native language, and so on?
 
Well, MINE were in TSVAREA, but that's not always true. I sat in one meeting 
that had no slides uploaded at all. Not naming names, because the responsible 
person supervising that meeting was sitting in front of me, and was also 
noticing that lack of meeting materials.
 
Alternatively, if we were going to tell people it's a good plan to listen to 
the audio and try to stay synchronized on their own copies of the slides, we 
could save the Meetecho people a lot of aggravation, and ISOC a fair amount of 
money. 
 
But let's not do that, OK?
