Dinner was great as only a room full of well-fed FOSS geeks can be, but I felt that that my time on-stage was too long and too chaotic; I apologise. The LCA team have done such a thorough job of recovering from events that it's a surprise when things don't magically come together.
So I propose an "LCA Dinner Rule" for future conferences: that dinner activities span no more than 1 hour. Preferably combining wit with its brevity.
(Oh, and I have a strong feeling that next year's dinner is going to be a superb event...)
