I think COMMON is an excellent ROI and not just something you send someone
to keep them happy.  Who would you send to COMMON from your company?
Someone who will use the knowledge gleaned, or, someone who has every
minute of every day planned out with travel brochures of Louisiana?  If I
get sent to a conference because of a good ROI then I like COMMON, IBM tech
conferences, and others.  And I will appreciate it.  If my company just
wants to send me someplace to keep me happy then I'd prefer a hunting or
fishing trip to some exotic location.

Pardon me ... but if a company's only litmus test for attending a
conference
is ROI ... then that's NOT a company *I* would want to work for ... good
grammar or not! <grin>

What's the ROI of, say, keeping a good employee happy??
