    Interesting idea. We need to timebox the speakers better, e.g. show them a "5 min remaining" warning. A few of the talks were pretty interesting, as were private discussions.

    This sounds amazing; is there any way we could expand it to a full day though? 3 hours is hardly enough to get the unconference energy up.

      we can definitely continue the conversation during an extended lunch downtown. 12pm-3pm

      At this point I don't have any resources that would work for the rest of the day.
