I agree with Dave and Michael on this.  I can totally picture doing this and 
know how it could work out.  But this group at the conference is, in my 
opinion, a very tough one.  That is the sense I had during my presentation 
last year.  A wide range of people from hackers, devs, business, VC folks...  
Very few are comfortable enough with their neighbours to graciously extend 
imagination to the speakers on stage.  I hope that by this time next year, 
we'll all have had enough rubbing of shoulders with each that we can have 
some more polished team presentations ready to go.  Then maybe some more 
'risky' like your proposal would be more realistic.

Sorry, didn't mean to ignore your idea! :S
