Instead of kvetching about what wasn't "perfect" about BarCamp, it might 
be very useful to catalog some of the great ideas we each took from 
BarCamp. For instance, I really got a lot of good ideas from 
"Information should be beautiful" and I'm really jazzed about creating 
"whodunit" user-stories as a means of requirements discovery.

Create a space at lunch or a time slot where people could connect with someone who could help them answer a question they had or solve a problem they are facing. This might require some talented person who could do the match-making based on some registration-table info gathering about questions and areas of expertise, or it could be more open.

This could be good for those times when no sessions seems to really fit your interests...you could wander over there and choose a tutorial to view with other folks or on your own.
