Accessibility: No Rights Without Responsibilities
I'm sorry you didn't get what you expected out of my talk. This session wasn't designed to be a hands on one. The one question asked about what are the minimum things to do for an accessible site couldn't be answered in the context of a 45 minutes talk. I invite you to contact me directly should you wish me to discuss specific accessibility techniques with you

Software Management Lessons from the 1960s
Great delivery of great content. Larry, you said last night your talk was a book review. It's much more than that.

Using our Superpowers for Good
Thank you for an awesome keynote. Some things were reminders of what I already knew. Others were new. Excellent use of real life anecdotes.

Squash Accessibility Bugs
It's always interesting to attend a presentation on a topic you know a fair bit about. I loved Andrea's approach and style. Thank you!

How to Go from Developer to Stakeholder
The topic was interesting. Using personal, real life, examples drove the points home. I love that while the talk was about tech, it is quite transferable to other areas as well. Having used real estate websites, and having found them generally appaling from a UI/UX and accessibility perspective, I now can't help but wonder how land real estate sites and systems perform :D

How to Communicate When You are from Mars and the Business is from Venus
Topic very well presented and organized. I've read a lot about the topic of personality traits. The presentation remained in the general rather than the specific. To be fair it's next to impossible to dive into specifics in a short hour. That said, I think the information would have been very valuable for people attending, particularly those who hadn't been exposed to these concepts before.

Closing Keynote
I have to echo Scott Hardie's comment, the talk sounded a bit like an infomercial. Learned a few interesting tidbits about e-commerce and excited at the idea of being able to trace a product's origin - though I remain sceptical in view of how that's (not) working out with foodstuffs in British Columbia (but that's another story). :) Federico had a great easy going presentation style. I do wish he'd repeated questions and comments from the audience before answering them, as many people didn't speak loudly or clearly and I missed quite a bit of what was said.
