Suggest-a-Session 2011 follow-up: What worked, what didn't, and how can we improve?

With the winnners of this year's Suggest-a-Session contest having been announced, we're eager to learn what we can improve for next year.

If you have feedback to share (good or bad), please leave a comment below or head on over to the Oracle OpenWorld group on Mix where others have already posted a number of good ideas: Suggest-a-Session 2011 follow-up: What worked, what didn't, and how can we improve?

You can also post links to other blog posts that discuss the contest.

Just like in previous years, we will go over all the input with the Events team and hopefully come up with something even better next time around. Thanks!
