Thanks Simon,

Can we test drive the rooms? Whoever can, just send Manolis and me a
private invite.

You have a good point with the TZs. I think we can do 3+4+3 hrs. 9

A blog is a great idea. We can all help too once you have a draft.


PS we have a great list of speakers for the real devroom. From near
and far :)
