With the exception of truly immediate cash needs (you know actual dollar bills hidden under your mattress for quick access), cash is an evil wasting asset and your goal should be to have none of it or the absolute minimum possible.
...
You leave a lot on the table if you don't and normally you are in fact losing somewhere between 2-3% annually for anything sitting around doing nothing. 10 years down the road, you got 75%ish of what you had in real terms.
But I've held gold for ~ten years! O0 I know- it doesn't work that way, which is why I continue to hold all four assets, but...I feel more positive about cash after reading the Portfolio Charts piece on it. It didn't change how much I hold. I just feel better now about what I do hold.

Gold is useless for the most part (not counting jewelry) but it’s pretty hard to argue against its usefulness in a diversified portfolio.

Just in one month, my stock allocation went from 25% to 25.7%. Market went up, plus adds to my 401(k). I was happy to shave off that 0.7% today. I pretty much distrust this rally, so I'm keeping everything on a tight leash.

Nice!

It looks like it's by webinar (not in person), but it does seem like a nice way to ask direct questions. Could be a very interesting talk.

Can't a webinar include voice? Or is it like Reddit AMA in which (I assume) the host speaks his answers and they are transcribed?

The meeting is still live at a hotel, and I imagine they will be live-streaming his presentation including voice and video ala Webex. It's not the same as shaking hands in person, but it's still a nice way to hear a good talk and meet other like-minded investors.

Thank you, Tyler. That's what I was thinking. I've only seen Vanguard webinars, and those were as you described.
I've never heard of Webex, but now I know it's not for cleaning spiders out of the corner of my den.
