I'm glad these talks were useful for the people who were there. 
However, they were completely meaningless to me. I'm noticing a 
disturbing trend to publish only PowerPoint or equivalent slides from 
important presentations. This is the second batch I've seen come into 
my Inbox this morning.

Slides of this nature are a useful tool to accompany an oral 
presentation. However, they leave out far too much to be useful or 
interesting to those of us who didn't attend. Steven Pemberton's talk 
in particular sounds like it may have been a very important session. 
I wish I had been there. However, there's almost nothing in his notes 
to tell us what he said and why he said it. OK, "xmlns:mumble bla bla 
bla ginger" was funny, but there must have been more to the talk than 

If a transcript, summary, audio or video recording, prepared paper, 
or other more appropriate format is not available, then there's 
really no point to mentioning the session here.
