One thing I'd particularly like to do (or get done) this year is to  
have a "showcase" of how XMPP can be used. Both real-world, deployed,  
cases and interesting proofs of concept would be good, but the aims  
are:

a) To make the stand more interesting.

b) To encourage people into looking into XMPP.

c) To demonstrate to us boring[*] server people what features are  
used (and how they're used).

I think having some time for people to talk tech about these projects  
would be useful, either in the devroom or at the summit.

I will as usual be manning the booth. If I can think of a devroom  
talk I'll offer that too, but that requires some good ideas of what  
to talk about to that audience.

Dave.

* - Not that I'm really that boring. I went to a party last year.  
Even had a conversation and *everything*. Admittedly it was about the  
relative merits of channel binding vs X.509 strong authentication,  
but still, social interaction, here I come. Nobody ever reads this  
far in my emails anyway, so frankly I don't know why I bother writing  
these bits, I'm really just wasting time until we start the annual  
discussions about t-shirt slogans and cuddly toy mascots.
