Michelle, as usual, makes some very good points and raises the essential
questions. In this case, I respond to

"how do you pick a session?"

I pick a session primarily on the reputation of the presenter. I expect
the session to initiate an ongoing conversation, even collaboration. I
find these sesions valuable enough to find out about speakers by checking
their published material and their rep among my colleagues. This
procedure has helped make my conference time much more personally
rewarding. Ten years ago I would have said that conferences were not
worth the time and trouble. I think the conferences are better, but I
know my use of the conference has improved more than the conferences
themselves.
