Echoing a couple other responses, I love that distributed conferences are more accessible, from a location, cost, and time perspective. It's so nice that I can go back and watch recorded sessions if I'm unable to attend live, and awesome that people across the globe can attend with one simple click. This provides a new sense of connectivity.

The main thing I miss is human interaction, but there are solutions to that as well. Some conferences, like the WWC Connect Forward, provide the option to have randomized one-on-one video meetings with other attendees. So cool!
