Wondering where did the Funnel idea came in the first place for
minidebconf, as far as I remember it NITC was using it for their
fossmeet of which minidebconf was a part of , that was the reason it
was used and yes it was more useful for Foss Meet than minidebconf ,
It also did have an effect on students deciding which talk to go .. My
personal opinion is that it lead to a mess atleast for the minidebconf
side of the story.
Also do you so many speakers and talks for students to choose from ?
In a general Foss event I guess Yes !
