Why do we want a distinction between ad-hoc stuff and the official

I had the impression that it really worked a lot better than last
year. The idea of using a whiteboard or chalkboard seems to make
a lot of sense.

Personally, I never used the online schedule much, as I'd learn of
ad-hoc events from the mailing list and then just added them to my
own calendar.

> + Should we keep the unconference style adhoc scheduling?

I'd say: yes, definitely. I think it's a core part of our
conference. If we didn't coordinate this, people would find ways

I've even heard and entertained thoughts about extending it and
*reducing* the number of "officially scheduled events" to two tracks
(e.g. technical and political/social/philosophical), concentrating
on events we know will draw a large audience, and making sure that
there is enough space for everyone else, including the possibility
to video-stream, etc.
