To me what lasts are the social aspects and yet they are almost never
at the forefront of meetings. The technical aspects are often
revisited later since synchronous decision making doesn't really work
well. Having said that, some form of technical breakouts do help in
identifying pain points and next steps.

I would love to see meetings that better balance social and technical
aspects and optimize for breakouts so you're not forced to sit through
something that is relevant to only five people in the room.
