Speakers : 5 out of 10 : Could try harder
Panels : 3 out of 10 : Too anodyne and buddy buddy
Venue: 7 out of 10 : Large arena, excellent audio visual support, easy to move from the auditorium to the networking area without disturbing the speakers
Networking: 8 out of 10: Good mix of people and some of the key european VCs are here (Advent, 3i)
Bonus points : The startup room was pretty good, each company gets 10 minutes to pitch or demo their product. The best get a main stage bit of PR this evening.
Total Downer: The wireless network is completely non-functioning, despite Loic bleating for us all to turn off skype and other peer-to-peer networking tools.
