it may actually have scientific value in disseminating research and helping
people world-wide to see "seminars" that they wouldn't otherwise see. On the other hand, it would be more work, and the Elsevier implementation may be poor. (Click below on "View a sample presentation". Can you find it? I looked for five minutes and couldn't. Maybe it's just me.) Thoughts?
