excuse me, but you want to do creative discussion at the irc conference? you
ARE aware that roughly half the list will not be attending? plus I thought

sorry for the flamebait, but you ARE NOT in a position of authority if 100%

it doesn't matter how good it is if nobody agrees. that's one of the reasons
