As a confirmed introvert, I have to say that I rarely attend parties,
for a variety of reasons.  However, I don't think our hypothetical
design-only meeting should completely eliminate parties, though we can
back off from some of the more extravagant ones.  If we maintain at
least one party, I think that would satisfy the social needs of the
community without distracting too much from the main purpose of the
event.  Of course, I agree with eliminating the other distracting
elements, such as schwag and giveaways…
