It'd be pretty cool to have a lightning talk or two on XMPP stuff -  
anyone got any ideas?

I'd also like us to have a stand, but also use it a little more  
constructively than previous years. In particular, I'd like to have  
some timed demos. What I'm looking for is to showcase unusual,  
exciting, shiny, or just plain clever projects built on XMPP - not to  
get technical information over, but just to spark interest.

Erm... Anyone any idea why ours isn't listed? (Nor on the website).
