Fifty, don't take what I said the wrong way, it was great that you 
contributed to the show in such a manner. It showed your enthusiasm and 
vigor sir, and I would want nothing less.

I like the format of the NYE show, it's loose, different, and welcoming. 
I do have to add, though, I; and I suspect many others may; find it 
difficult to participate only because I usually have to work that day 
and then there is all the family stuff going on that takes up most of 
the time to join. Regardless, I would not want to see it moved to 
another day, it's now become an event; and spanning it over 24+ hours 
allows so many people to contribute.

The idea of an unconference show: Short topic followed by questions; is 
a great one. Although I am not sure it should [only] be applied to the 
NYE show. Perhaps this could be a regular event on HPR, one a week, once 
every other week, or monthly. Someone could volunteer to do the talk; 
maybe sign up in advance or someone could request it; and it could be 
scheduled. Tthat is something that could be recorded for an episode. A 
calendar could go up and people could schedule a time for their talk and 
others would know when to jump on for questions. In this way it is not a 
regularly scheduled event but something that just occurs. Then again I 
don't want to infringe too much on LinuxLugCast's format. This was more 
a ramble than a cohesive thought.
