Yes, I felt that even this time we had a big "show and tell"  
component ("look what cool things I did/could do with OSM data").  
These things would be quite appealing to OSM outsiders as well I  
believe, so if they were presented not (only?) in a lecture but  
(also?) in an exhibition that would be great. However having proper  
exhibition "booths" like LinuxTag however would tie down too much
