The *greatest* threat?
You could have chosen the rampant sexism, lack of women attendees, booth babes, quality of food, inaccessible pricing, geographic distribution, proportion of talks that are just thinly veiled adverts, etc, etc
I had no idea that lolcats have now become such a serious issue that they've managed to top the list!

So I'm looking to do an Ignite talk on "the greatest threat to tech
conferences today" at Oscon. Basically it's going to be a very
tongue in cheek presentation where I present 20 slides, each slide
1. The Speaker + a link to their talk
2. The important point they were making
3. The picture of the (probably cute & fluffy) animal
4. How the animal ruined the message
e.g. Something like "So here's X, talking about Y (note the link!), an
awesome <technology> for <this reason>,
important knowledge right?! Well this particular <animal> came and
ruined that, <mini rant>"
So if you've ever given a presentation with a cute and fluffy animal
then I'd like to grab the 4 points from you + a copy of the
picture. Full accreditation etc of course!
