My plan is to describe the problem first for the public in the room. Then
describe the proposals and their advantages and disadvantages. This should
start the discussion pretty well.
I would be happy if we managed to settle at least on the requirements for
a solution. It seems that our experience with users and their use cases
differ a lot and I doubt we could come up with a good solution without
stating what we want (and don't want) first.
Silly hope is that there may be someone with a perfect solution in the
room. After all, it is what conferences are for.
