    Just make sure you are addressing something more critical than this poor submitter I had to reject:

        I take it my proposal to offically change the Hacker War Cry from "Hack The Planet" to "Crack Da Wepz" is out of the question to.

          DT, I would like to officially request that anyone that uses the phrase "I can has" or any form thereof in the CFP submission be not only rejected, but beaten with their own limbs...

            I just wanted to give people the heads up that might not have read it on the CFP page that it seeems this year there will be two rounds of speaker acceptance and that half of the schedule will be filled before the submission deadline to encourage people to submit as early as possible.

            This would be a good year not to chose to be a total slacker like me. ;)

              When will the first round be announced? May 1st sticks in my head for some reason, but I don't see an exact date range anywhere.

                May 1 sounds about right!

                  I'm giddy to hear back. I've never submitted to talk before. Win, lose, or draw, I'm looking forward to the actual event!

                  Too bad it's still 3+ months away........

                    First batch selected, working on second batch now.. I hope to hear back from everyone by this weekend and announce the send batch next week.

                    In the end I'm expecting four or five batches total, keep an eye out this weekend for the first batch to be posted. It's getting close to CON!

                      I'm anticipating about 5,000 refreshes over the weekend for the first batch. Submitting adds a layer of anticipation (as if more was needed)! BWHAHAHA!

                        Does the submission process have a confirmation reply this year? I opted for the "email DT directly if you want to use PGP" option specified on the CFP page, but didn't receive any word back on whether or not it was received.

                        Just curious.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                            How many talks approx. are going to get accepted? With more speaking rooms, I was curious if there was a target number of slots to fill.

                            There's been 35ish accepted so far, so there's a decent amount to still be decided, no?
