Whether or not this is a good or bad idea depends entirely on what you
want the duration, and the content, of your talk to be.
I don't know if it's as much of a good/bad idea situation as it is a
"we have to make the best of what we've got" situation.
The room in ART that would be able to contain everyone is good till
5pm, which really isn't all that great for us, schedule-wise.
Ryan and I are trying to square a few things away with the folks in
Sparky's Den, including things like "Do you have a PA system /
microphone / anything handy for talking."
But, if we think this is a Really Bad Unproductive Idea, we should
think about rearranging the schedule a bit.
My gut tells me that a speech at FUDPub has to be short, and relatively
high level/superficial, for attention spans and desire to focus one's
brain on heavy issues will be low once people shift into "fun" mode.
What's the first rule about public speaking? "Know thy room."
