Lying to ourselves?

Shelley Powers, whom I've taken to task before, has a very insightful comment on Burningbird today in a posting about O'Reilly's FOO camp and the counter-culture BAR camp.
"...if the purpose to go is to network, then you have to ask what the value of our online connectivity is if we feel we have to meet people in person in order to be successful. I mean, the people who are selling the whole 'online experience' thing are the same ones who are running around from conference to conference, meeting to meeting. Either this is all new, in which case the old style of networking doesn't matter; or the people who are networking about how this is all new are propagating a lie."

Anybody interested in a "no-camp camp"?
