This talk session will be split into five minute segements for lightning
talks on a variety of subjects from different speakers. Lighning talks have
long been a staple of Perl conferences and offer a way to get an idea,
technique, interesting peice of software, etc out to the audience without
all the overhead of a regular talk; now let's try them at DebConf.
The five minute time limit will be strictly enforced. Hopefully we will
manage to have 6 or 7 talks in this time. Anyone who would like to give a
talk should contact the organiser, Joey Hess. We will have a rehersal
session at some point beforehand.
Notes to organisers: A fixed mic will be needed for the talks. Joey will
handle timekeeping reminders, etc. Use of laptops will be discouraged. The
track is "technical" just because most of them probably will be. It's
possible that we might conflict with speakers in some other track since all
the lightning talks won't be known in time; I'll try to have an alternate
lined up in case this happens.
