I educate an audience about a technical topic a few times a year. Getting 
the data from those old-fashioned feedback forms and the comments upon 
them within a day or two is invaluable. If feedback isn't quickly 
available (and it can be difficult for a large conference) then a few 
selected auditors is almost as good.

As for slides, uggh. Most talks would be better with just a few slides 
showing code fragments, photos or diagrams. So many people confuse the 
role of slides and speaker's notes. And just because marketing people put 
a logo on every flat surface doesn't mean you need to do the same.
