The faster the presentations end the sooner we can grab some beer, but 60
minutes total sounds pretty short. Given that we only get to do this every
month and the high number of interesting topics that have been proposed I
don't see anything wrong with 1.5 or 2 hours. Does anyone else think that
having presentations from say 7 to 9 is too long?
