I think we should pick one area for interop so we (me?) can setup a
test environment for peeps to target - that way it's focused and folks
can come prepared

If we do have it, then I think it should be a side-bar or off where
someone can focus on them and not a major point of the summit.

With the books available now, we should give them that and
instructions on how to get online :)

Interop and testing - that's my major focus to be honest.
