The Casual Games Association just posted audio and powerpoint slides for all sessions from Casual Connect: Europe 2009.  If you were not there to enjoy Hamburg in February (think the opposite of Hawaii), you can feel like you were there by listening in to the sessions.

I asked a game developer friend what his favorite sessions were and he listed:  Lars Brubaker, Reflexive EntertainmentJohn Barbour, Real Games, Confessions of a Games Portal, Publisher Showdown, and Dr. Strangelove: How I learned to love the Recession of 2009, moderated by Joel Brodie.

OK, the last one I added (was my favorite).  For full list, go to CGA Web site and search for anything with a "New" tag.  Great listening for game developers, fun for game players as well to get insights into casual games.
