hey John, all

We need to bear in mind we have only 48 talk slots right now; and one of
our goals is to give as many people as possible the opportunity to talk
(inclusivity). In the event we get less than 48 submissions we could reach
out to speakers for some extended talks.

Right now I’d prefer to not advertise it as an option.
