There are also loads of reasons for attending the lightning talks (there is a 1-hour block of those each day at 22C3, with 10 talks in a row). It’s entertaining. You get to learn about a lot of different subjects in a short time. And even if one particular speaker is boring: hey, it will be over in just 5 minutes and a new topic will begin. But what is a lightning talk? It’s a 5-minute talk you (for reasons of your own) don’t feel like doing as a full 1-hour presentation. Maybe the topic is too obscure. Maybe the research you want to present is still too much in progress. Maybe you just want to talk about a detail you noticed on the way to the congress. Maybe you have a cool software or hardware hack you need helpers for and just want to drop the name of your project. Maybe you got the idea for doing a talk at the congress itself and the deadline for the call for papers is long gone… There are really loads of reasons why you should do a lightning talk. Just be short and sweet. After 5 minutes, you will be cut off and it’s the next speaker’s turn.
