    I was pretty bold in taking two spots now, however I feel I have quite a lot to contribute. Feel free to move these around. They don't really tie together that well, so I want them separated. However it isn't certain I really need 30 minutes for each either. I'll update this page when I have a better idea of what amount of time I need.
    Maybe each as a 15 min piece? It will partly depend on how many of our potential speakers will be able to attend. Doc James (talk) 13:51, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
    Would work well, but if possible I'd like them separate. CFCF (talk) 14:03, 23 January 2017 (UTC
