emacsconf's opening question was "do you think being white influenced your experience with emacs," or similar, and the (white french) presenter said, with detail, "yes."

That really sets a good tone for the conference, to my ear.

(It helps that I also know like, at least a couple presenters lol.)


@technomancy @emacsomancer I'mma be gone for huge chunks of today and tomorrow, unfortunatley - if there are any talks you hear you think i should tune into, please let me know! (I haven't actually looked at the schedule yet, figuring i'd watch what i can as i can and be grateful for that.)

@emsenn I'm pretty sure everything will be recorded and made available somewhere, so you should be able to catch anything you missed later on.

(They're also not quite 'on schedule' at the moment.)

This afternoon there's a bunch of Org talks which look interesting, including stuff on org-roam (which I'm still trying to figure out if it would make sense for my workflow), starting with https://emacsconf.org/2020/schedule/16 .

Tomorrow afternoon there are also a number of interesting looking talks:

- one about RPG gaming using Emacs: https://emacsconf.org/2020/schedule/28/
- a talk on vterm - https://emacsconf.org/2020/schedule/30 - which is right before
- Grant's talk on Lakota in Emacs: https://emacsconf.org/2020/schedule/31
