Very little, actually.  It was what - 2000 people? - 1 day of tutorials 
(which I didn't attend) 3 days of paper pesentations and panels and 
plenary/keynote speeches (some of which was interesting of course, others 
of which were lots of marketing fluff), and 1 day of "developers' day", 
which was marginally more interesting.  Most of the actual content (and 
all of the useful content :) was made available in a book and accompaning 
CD-ROM, and I believe they are all available at the conference web site 
as well.  We held an Apache BOF which attracted roughly 15 people, where 
I talked about the new features of 1.1 mostly and issues regarding future 
plans (threading, autoconf, etc.), making no promises of course. :)  The 
biggest amount of feedback was in the customer service department, 
particularly in realm of bug tracking.

In attendance from the list were myself, rob thau, dirk van gulik, roy 
fielding, kevin hughes, and I think that's it - elizabeth frank was also 
at the HTTP 1.1 BOF on dev. day as well.  

Nothing really happened specific to Apache... though I did hear a 
microsoft engineer offer to sponsor a summer intern to port Apache to 
NT.  :)  

Jim Clark's speech was rambly - he blasted microsoft by saying that by 
controlling the industry all innovation had ceased, yet gloated about the 
"fact" that they "own 85% of the market".  Ah well.

Certainly much different than Geneva.
