Dear Sören (and Luis),
This all sounds great! I think we definitely want to aim to organize
the event around 3-4 streams such as the Technology, Society and
Culture items as you mentioned.
I also think, even with a very open process, it would be good to have
a formal programme/organizing committee for OKCon this year to set
deadlines, handle the CFP etc. What do people think (and anyone want
to put themselves forward?).
