I think the "Driver Panel" discussion makes much more sense. Many
ten-minute presentations back-to-back will simply push the whole
Tuesday schedule into the weeds.
Agreed. I'm working on a presentation, and I'm happy to hand it out,
but I can't cover all of my issues in 10 minutes. All of these topics
are interesting (and relevant), but I suspect that we really need more
than just a couple of hours (although maybe not in plenary).
