Re: [802SEC] DVD versus Memory Sticks


As a sort of an echo to Geoff, for the substantial difference in DVD to USB stick cost, we could easily purchase and have shipped to the on-site meeting multiple (say 5) USB based DVD drives (< $20 each with free shipping on at least one site).

We could then give them away at the meeting (shipping is probably too expensive) and buy 5 more for the next meeting. 3 plenaries per DVD year, $300 to provide 5 DVD readers at each meeting.

I still like the idea of USB sticks with our logo on it, but it is $4,000-$5,000 more expensive per year.

I am in favor of continuing the DVDs.
I believe that most folks have the ability to transfer from DVDs somewhere in their universe.Also, we can do something to facilitate loading the package or selected bits at the meeting.  We have a help desk and a local only network at each plenary.  Using either or both of those facilities we can set something up at the meeting.  We even would have some budget to support that in terms of the cost difference between sticks and DVDs.

I am requesting that you try and get some input for me on the topic of memory sticks from participants in your WG and have the individuals email me if they have issues with memory sticks.  I need to get this information quickly in order to begin the task of preparations for the 2016 electronic media distribution, so a prompt response will be greatly appreciated.
