I will be coming up with some strict timelines for each lightening  
talk.  Literally, we are going to stop-watch these talks.  When time  
is up... the speaker must sit down.

The presenter can do whatever they want for the most of that time.  
However, there are a couple of questions they must answer. I will be  
making a list and sending this directly to those talking, shortly.  It  
may also be best to have each talker not use a computer.  It would be  
cooler to have someone fill out rows (one per languages) with those  
questions as columns and project this instead.  We will end up with a  
language comparison spreadsheet.

Yeah, this will be a bit of a mess. But, it will be fun. Sure there  
may be some flames, but think we can keep these contained burns. Let's  
see how it goes. Perhaps it will be a huge mess or our best meeting  
yet... I am willing to take that chance.

I certainly see where we can roll this into separate ChiPy meetings on  
two languages per in the future.
