Subject: June 23rd meeting: openings for Lightning Talks
To: bostonhaskell at googlegroups.com

Both speakers for the June 23rd meeting have let me know that they
expect their presentations to be on the shorter side of the 30-45
minutes alloted, so that means we have some space in the schedule. We
could just use that as additional free-form discussion and mingling
time, but since I saw them be successful at ILC'2009 and at the Boston
Lisp Meeting after that, I'd like to offer that space to anyone who
wants to give a "Lightning Talk".

I think we should use the same formula as the Lisp Meeting:
strictly-timed 5-minute talks followed by 2-minutes for questions and
answers from the audience. Lightning talks don't have to be
Haskell-specific, as long as the topic is appropriate for the

If you're interested in giving a Lightning Talk at the June 23rd
meeting, please contact me ( ravi at bluespec.com ) and let me know what
you'd like to talk about.

Thank you,
