Re: I'm I just a small thinker?

No, I think you are perfectly correct to find it overly expensive. The original notification I received stated that the seminar will be 45 minutes to one hour long -- and this webinar covers the three story wood building example in volume two of the design manuals. Not to point any fingers, but why do we need a seminar on a design example? Could it be that the examples are not worked out in enough detail to make it self explanatory?

First they take us for the design manuals that are full of errors and then they take us for the seminars. 

By the way, there is a seminar offered on anchors in concrete for $295.  What is going on here?  Just charge the captive audience to educate them on the codes you helped write. This is just my opinion.

Or does anyone else think it is ludicrous to charge $250 for a webinar connection?
I’m referring to Don’t get me wrong; I think Doug Thompson is a fine speaker and the topic should be interesting.
But $250 and not even a continental breakfast?
Is it just me?
