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 !
