DebConf19 starting this Saturday! I'll see if I can find some time to watch (or just listen) to a few streams.

It feels like there's so much information floating around on the internet that its almost irresponsible to release content that hasn't been revised or edited, especially when you have a large audience. The example that comes to mind is YouTube. There should be a rating system for how time-efficient videos are.

Hmmm, I should consider making a now banner for this instance..
