Okay! Do you have a maximum quorum for such a class?

I don't really see this working, at least not in a convention this size. Just imagining how long it takes for 4 ordinary panelists to get to the room, get seated and settled, get the audience's attention and start the panel...I have a hard time imagining panels rotating out in five minute cycles. Some cons have done five-minute speed talks, but those are individual people.

I think panels are better when they're more relaxed, anyway. There's usually so much to cover as it is!

Don't worry, Michael. It will depend entirely on the panel topic.

We ARE, in fact, going to make an effort to get away from the standard "talking heads at the front of the room, take questions at the end" format, and toward a more flexible, participatory, open discussion model. This will evolve more as I assign panels to people and then we start talking about specifics.

There is a Maker and Demo track which is actually being organized by Michael Whitehouse, apart from the main Programming Track. We have a humungous room for it.
