I don't necessarily think that this sort of stuff should be done at
GUADEC - we have no delivery vehicle for these types of talks. GUADEC
has traditionally been attended by the people doing the work, and it's
been relatively hard getting new people involved.

I wish we'd do more of these types of talks at bigger conferences with
already guaranteed audiences, and having them during the main IGC week
seems ideal for that.
