Session voting skewed?
Am I the only person who thinks the session voting is an inaccurate representation of what the attendees are really interested in seeing? The list on this site is clumsily presented (e.g. cannot effectively search by tag or author, lack of navigation between sessions), but worse, the list is sorted by votes.
Sorted by votes means the most popular always appear first, and by virtue of being first, tend to get more votes. How many people wade through all pages of sessions? More recently proposed sessions also get better visibility.
Nothing prevents people from actually finding and viewing all of the sessions, but human nature being what it is, the way the sessions are presented is distorting the voting process.
