I always liked conferences with travel. Even though I don't like being around people as a rule, knowing that these people got what I did for a living and I wouldn't be interacting with them after the conference made it easy to brainstorm and learn. I felt I could learn better without the jangling day-to-day work demands, phone calls, emergencies.

Also got decent swag--still using some of those tote bags :-)
