With the 2009 ESRI International User Conference finished up, ESRI is providing free highlight seminars. They are bringing a summary of what went on to you. I think this is great for those who just could not get out there.
If you were able to keep up remotely via blogs, twitter, and plenary video (10 Tips for Those Not Attending the ESRI User Conference) then I am not sure how beneficial this will be. You may already be up to date.
Jack Dangermond has an introductory video explaining their intent. He states that they are doing this to help out those who could not attend the UC because of travel restrictions or other reasons.
