The best novelty at this year’s reboot are the micropresentations. 15 slides 20 seconds each equal 5 minutes for each speaker, and this is very tough. But its also a fun game, and it is perfect to cram a much information in a slot as possible. I loved it!
This experience leads to the thought: why not having only one track of short talks in one room instead of two? We conference visitors are always in fear of missing something important in the room next door.
Another idea – courtesy to Alexander Ljung – why not starting the day with micropresentations of all talks? This would be like presenters pitching for their slot, we would get a great overview.
