we have several options to propose something on simplicity for ACCU 07.
Peter's Only the code tells the truth in 06 ended in a goldfish bowl, because of the many participants even though it was announced as a workshop.
Giovanni made a presentation (= lecture ?).
Kevlin has presented a couple of keynotes which embrace the theme.
A panel would be fun, but we might not learn that much from it. IMHO, if we propose a "funny" panel, this should come along with a more serious part. On such a panel an opponent to Simplicity is important, even if it is someone acting like one.
(However, this might make it even harder to make effective, so perhaps that suggests this is an option for the future? Kevlin)
What would be our goal?
I believe we are not ready for a tutorial yet (Peter) Agreed (Kevlin) Ditto (Giovanni)
A potential title:
Yes, this title and subtitle are good. I think a 90-minute goldfish bowl, kicked off with an initial draft of Simple Code, is one option and a 180-minute workshop, perhaps ending in a goldfish bowl, is another. In a workshop, we could have people break into groups and identify benefits and potential pitfalls of software simplicity, complexity, etc, and try to draw up a number of proto/mini-manifestos from that.
I like the title as well. Another option could be a 90-minute goldfish bowl/workshop followed by some birds of a feather later on (this year we have plenty of space in the new hotel), this would give the opportunity to the attendees to check it out (workshop), and follow up if interested.
