I've decided to run a series of emergency chats on Barcamp at
on Friday afternoon 4:30 – 6pm and
Saturday 2:30 – 4:30pm, 6:30pm – 8pm
Wait and See is much too unappealing. People are online at any time.
TBH Paddy on Pro-activity: I emailed everyone on Tommie's ICN mailing

Gordon FPI Blog Chief said he'd run a piece. My guess is it got lost

links and tweets.
John McMahon of FPI Belfast was invited a few weeks ago. I gave him a

some FPI staff there. So much so that I would reserve places. Stephen
from Reads/Easons is keen and I will email him shortly.
Format is certainly a good consideration but would most likely be
decided from a bit of research into what Easons want. Maybe one for an
end of the day session and a selection of talking point examples. Oh,
and then there's content.
Legalities AND profit-sharing. I would imagine any attendees consider
creator work freedoms important, so far as a consensus. A proper pay

members of the government in Northern Ireland and dinosaurs look upon
