The highlights you mention are definitely on my list as well, and I agree that the Summit was a smashing success. Titles and labels (of jobs) weren't the main focus, which was a pleasant surprise. I don't remember any titles of the many cool people I met, but it was clear that we're all in this together- one way or another.
All of the presentations gave me plenty to think about, and now that I'm back at work the idea of "Enterprise IA" in particular has been on my mind this week. For me, your and PeterMe's presentation on this was very helpful- to get my head out of my familiar IA daily routine and start thinking big time (is that Extra-Large IA, as opposed to Big IA?). Bob Boiko and PeterMo's talks also inspired me to think about how I can be a better Change Agent in my own organization. That's the title I really want!
Great job by the program committee. Thanks for your hard work. I look forward to next year.

Matt Jones's presentation was a highlight for me as well. Let's hear it for Interference Architecture.
Seriously, though, it's exciting to see so much effort going into improving search. My heart sinks every time one of my usability test subjects mouses over to the search box, because I know that despite my best efforts, that person will likely fail to find what they're looking for. If only Matt would publish some numbers showing the (cough) ROI of all that good work.
