digitalmars.D - Why hasn't DConf online happened yet?

I will appeal to the D foundation to seriously consider taking 
DConf online. I've seen and even commented on Walter's post about 
it here [1]. I'm not sure why the support has not gone for making 
it happen yet. Probably the idea is that the epidemic will die 
off soon and we can do it in-person as usual. However, I'm not 
sure if that'll hold true since no one really knows when and if 
that will happen within a yr.

Even then, my main point is there's little holding us back (IMO) 
from making it happen and there are powerful tool for video 
conferencing...like of Zoom, Google Meet, among others. There,s 
even free ones like Jitsi if you want to host one yourself. 
There's ExcaliDraw [2](free) for whiteboarding/brainstorming both 
one person and remote collaboration.

So why can't we make it happen?

I'm working on it. I've been exploring different options, and a handful of people have offered to help out once things get rolling. I'm looking at doing it in September. Once I get all the pieces in place, I'll make the announcement and overhaul the DConf web site.
