What an introduction...

Actually (and sorry to anyone that disagrees) but Brian was crap. He rambled, he used old and outdated slides, he said little of relevance and he left the audience wishing he's shut up and let us get out to morning tea and the free ice-cream.

Last year Bruce Sterling was annoying and contentious, but at least he said something. Fling? Meh, I'm over it....
