The one downside was the “unconference” track. Not a single participant defined session. Bummer! We had a taste that this might be coming though, from Kaliya Hamlin’s observation a couple of weeks back that unconference and formal conference don’t necessarily make the best companions. Lesson learned.
I think it would be great to have an unconference in this space (having been to the Emerging Telephony Conference). I hybrid model that does work is one day of formal conference and a second day that is an unconference.
