Ok, please review the list of registered talks and
give me your feedback as 1-10 rating (1 - not all that interesting,
10 - must have this one) for each talk:

My own talk proposal is for 60 minutes as well - it's hard
to fit a complex subject into 30 minutes.

In any case, I agree that we'll probably need 8 hours total.

I would welcome joining forces with some of the smaller tracks,
e.g. the Misfits and the Python language tracks.

If we could get 4 people for the on-site track
chairing, then each of us would only have to spend 2 hours
attending the track and we could then still enjoy the rest
of the conference.

The more people help out, the better for everyone !

BTW, I would like to repeat my request that the Python framework
track and the business track not overlap; not just because
I'd like to attend some business talks as well, but also
because I find that both tracks have lots of interesting
talks to offer and give a good view on Python from the
business and the developer perspective - which is a first
at EuroPython !
