I currently have 10 speakers, 12 titles, and 46 slides (of 108). There will be at least 2 slots for on-the-spot speakers (first to the mic wins), plus to replace whoever doesn't show; if you come up with a cleverer title than one I have, I'll use it; and I still need lots of pictures/graphs to use for slides.

QUESTION:
 +
 +
One thing I'm not decided on yet: should speakers
 +
a) not see anything at all until the audience does, or
 +
b) see a preview of the *next* slide only (in presenter mode, i.e. speaker sees current and next slide, audience only sees current)
 +
 +
b) would allow for more connected riffs with less flustery reaction; it also means they get a few seconds to prepare before they start the talk. a) would be more sheer random wtfery.
 +

IME @ Notacon, I thought that the "WTF?" reaction from presenters being just flatfooted by the next slide got old/annoying pretty fast (and took time away from their talk). I'd like to see people give talks with a certain amount of thought. Granted, the whole point of this is to be weird and random and spontaneous - but not necessarily to *actually* flail. :-P
 +
 +
OTOH, flail itself is funny, especially with alcohol, and would force people to be more spontaneous.
 +
 +
I'm currently inclined towards a), or possibly to doing a 50-50 test run to0 .
