okay, if I'm literally the only one that's kind of problematic, 
yeah. Let's see how it goes on Sunday.

I'd guess that ... like, either ultimately a structured online 
conference just isn't something people are interested in or think 
is useful, or the effort of recording videos poses too much of a 
roadblock. You wouldn't think that flying to London would be more 
effort than making a video, but it wouldn't surprise me. Or right 
now maybe people are keeping their ideas for the next in-person 
DConf, so if Corona keeps up we'd see more talks next year.

You know what, let's ask. Anyone here who considered submitting 
but didn't, would you share why not?
