Hello All:

It seems the consensus is definitely to not have competition during the
round-table discussions. I think I have a solution. Dedicate 9:15 - 10:15
a.m. on Friday morning, after the first round of sessions, to round-table
discussion. There's a 15 minute break before and a 15 minute break on either
end, after and before the previous and next round of workshops. This would
seem to provide adequate dedicated time for networking and round-table
discussion. And by Friday, folks might welcome a break from the workshops.

Having it during lunch on Thursday, as per Jon's and Hadi's suggestion, also
seems workable but I'd like to keep the keynote lunch as it is this year.
But perhaps this is the way to go next year.

Let me know what you think. The next step is to identify round-table topics
and someone to perhaps lead or at least facilitate discussion. After all, we
don't want anarchy. :-)
