I've been thinking about the idea of having a FAD and I agree with
smooge about limiting the topics we're trying to achieve. I know
that my ability to finish projects at FUDCon has gone down over the
past few years because the number of projects that I'm involved in at
a given FUDCon has gone up. It seems to me that FADs are designed for
getting things done. So it would be great for us to focus on just
one project (example topic: security; example project: enable 2
factor auth). If we have three days and we finish 2 factor in two
days, we can always decide to work on a new security-related project
Yeah, I think having that perhaps as a primary goal and listing other
possible things as 'if we can get to them' might be best.
One issue is that it might be 2 people are implementing something
related to 2 factor and others have to wait for that to be done before
they can do their part, they could work on something else.
But I agree, we should try and focus...
