Re: [nycpython] Lightning talks?

From: Steve H.
Sent on: Monday, October 18, 2010 1:13 PM
I'd like to give my talk about "How to Give a *Short* Lightning Talk",
to remind people that 5 minutes is the *maximum*, and not a requirement.
Since I am in Reykjavik, however, someone would have to read it for me.
It goes like this:

        "This is a talk about how to give a short lightning talk.
         Thank you very much".

regards
 Steve
