I'm with Barry on this one. The time I spend searching for people's twitter names is time I'd rather be live-tweeting their talk and name-checking them properly...

Dear Ms Gas,
Many people at meetings need every encouragement to communicate and will not bother to search.

I just came from a meeting of internet researchers which did
not give either e-addresses or twitter handles on badges or on
the list of researchers. Oi vey

ironic comment?  given any of name / email / twitter, the other two is trivial to find using a search engine, no?  i guess if you find someone interesting and pay attention than you can work out at least one of those during the conference.  too hard?
