Driving content by what people want is really powerful. Driving
it by what they want on the day of the event, even more so.
I've become a big advocate of the Open Space format for this
reason. Done right, most sessions are proposed and hosted by a
person who wants to learn something or solve a problem rather
than by someone with a solution or tutorial to offer.
