This weekend, the content team held the first round of talk selection. Some people had even gone to the pain of traveling to Berlin to participate. Kudos to them. We met, we were holed up for 17 hours total, much Club Mate was obliterated, benign (and evil) laughter and agitated shouts were echoing through the CCCB as we argued over which talks to accept, which to reject and for which to postpone the decision.
We managed to look at each and every submission we got – there were many funny and interesting submissions, and to all of you who submitted something: we thank you all for offering to contribute to making the 25C3 a great event for all of us.
We will be highlighting some of the accepted talks with short introductions here soon. So stay tuned.
But even though we made good progress this weekend, the hardest part is yet to come – we still have many candidates for which we postponed the decision until the next meeting in two weeks, with only few open slots left. It’ll be interesting for sure. And controversial.
Personally, I’ll be bringing my suit of armour to the next round. And a megaphone.
