Hmm, I wonder why... Tim and I have only had a single request
for the Business Track so far. That's the reason I was pushing
the announcement of the CFP the past few weeks.

It's not that urgent; just thought I'd mention it.

The silence on the mailing list and occasional mentions
of IRC chats made me wonder whether there's a whole lot
going on behind the scenes...

Anyway, the track chairmen will have to tell speakers how
to plan for their talks, so perhaps we should kick off
a discussion on this topic ?!

If Wednesday becomes mostly a tutorial day, then I'd
suggest to have the business track on Thursday with as
many slots as needed (depends on how many speakers we
can find).
