Writing about the STC Annual Conference, someone said, with typical hyperbole:

"I counted one or two technical presentations among hundreds of "career
development" and "earn the respect you deserve" type seminars."

You must have stopped counting before you got to the Tools and Technology
stem. Neil Perlin (a newly elected Associate Fellow, and well deserving!) did
more than one or two technical topics himself (on XML and on "bleeding-edge"
technologies). I attended more than one or two XML sessions that were over my head
(one of Neil's and one by a guy who's implementing it at IBM). I also
attended a Dreamweaver MX demo that I would consider a technical presentation. So
that's three I attended personally, and two more I know of.

Were all the sessions technical? No. Were there more than a few? Yes, there
were more than I could attend.
