Re: Vantage points
Frankly, I don't know why people bring up a "profit motive" either.
I don't know much about Dan's seminars or travel expenses. I'm not even in the "IP/IT/IS crowd," but who cares?
If he teaches something that people find value in, than there is no issue as I see it.
I have attended many seminars that are much more expensive than Dan's.
Bottom line, there is no free lunch.
Now, if you suspect that what Dan is teaching isn't as valuable as the price, don't pay it. I don't buy coffee from Starbucks, but practically everyone I work with does. It's not a problem for me, or them.
