I don't think you can lump the keynotes in with the lightning talks.
I had to go check the schedule to see which keynotes were "diamond"
ones.  I wasn't thinking to myself, "oh, this must be a paid keynote"
at the time at all.  In fact, the Google one was the most entertaining
of all, judging by audience reaction.

But the vast majority of the vendor lightning talks were a waste of
time, I agree.
