You have a point. I have already gone through all talks and formed
a rough idea in my mind. However I quickly scanned the list
just now again with a rather good-very good filter in my mind
and I actually came up with exactly 24 talks :)

Yes - we should take care to filter bad talks of course, but
need to balance it out with the fact that we need to give
students a chance, so if you ask me it is a kind of "necessary evil"
to pick a few among the low grade talks - not many so as to
spoil the broth, but just a few.
