  • Short Talks ++ (Score:3, Insightful)

    by mir (51) <xmltwig@gmail.com> on 2002.03.25 2:18 (#6286) Homepage Journal
    My votes goes to mostly short talks. It allows for a wider variety of topics to be presented, for the occasional joke (Davorg's talk at last year's TPC comes to my mind) and allows the attendees to avoid the "trapped here for one more hour" feeling.
    Long presentation should really be reserved for short tutorials, ie the speaker could actually talk for 4 hours about the subject. The presentations that I like best are either "look, this is something cool, go back home and learn more about it" or "here is a problem in the community|language|tools, here is a proposed solution, let's talk about it". Both can fit in a 35mn talk + 10 mn questions + additional reading or discussions after the talk.
