Re: [nycpython] Lightning talks?

Great I believe that's 4*!  One extra point I'll mention is that 5
minutes goes by much faster than you'd think, so it's good to focus on
a few things that get at the kernel of what you want people to know -
with 5 minutes, you're trying to introduce a topic and get people
excited about it, not make them experts.

Also, I'll give you notice when you have 2 minutes and 1 minute left,
so you can adjust how much you're going to cover based on that too.

(Or 5, if someone volunteers to give Steve's reminder talk)
