I think that the value in Flock has always been the Hallway Track far
more than the presentation content. (Not that we haven't had some
great talks over the years, of course!) Flock provides an opportunity
for people who generally interact with each other only via email, IRC
or in rare cases video-chat. I think attempting to convert Flock to an
online-only event would result in losing the most important part of
the event. In which case, I don't think that would be budget

Maybe we could convince our sponsors to let us put the budget aside to
fund more people to attend in 2021?
