Thinking strategically, I would be positively surprised if we'd get more 
than one Grok talk accepted. We could try, of course, but I personally 
would bet on only one horse. In fact, I think it would be nice if the 4 
founding fathers of Grok would reunite for a talk and each cover 
different topics (movitation, community, history, technical stuff). I 
think that would give people a nice impression of Grok, the humor behind 
it, the history and the code itself. I think this could be fun and 
refreshingly different from other talks.

Either way, I'll be happy to participate in any kind of panel, shootout, 
etc. if nobody else wants to.
