To post, or not to post, a list of “panels that look interesting”?

Pros: fills a blog post; highlights panels that I find interesting; provides potential springboard for discussions about conferences and conventions.

Cons: most interesting-looking panels turn out to be letdowns; will invariably piss off people whose panels I don’t include; somewhat dishonest, as I’ve spent most of the last few conferences I’ve been at in the bar.
