There are two items:

* Someone gives a introductory 10 min intro explaining the barcamp 
style, followed by pitches and notes on the board.

* We put up a event board in the front of the main conference room (and 
other rooms) explaining the agenda

There are people who would need time and interest to be build up before 
they can start contributing. We need to accommodate them in some way. 
Whether that is by giving talks or some other means, we need to figure 
that out. Ideas, welcome.
