Call for STIC Talk Input

I think I'm going to submit a talk proposal to STIC for the March conference. There are lots of UI/Tools related things I could try and talk about, however there's only 45 minutes given for a talk slot. So I'm putting out a call for talk input. If you are coming to STIC this year, and have to listen to me for 45 minutes, what would I talk about to make the best use of your time?

Some possible thoughts that have crossed my mind:

  • Here's how Skins work, the issues involved, and where we want to go with them

  • Where 15 years of the VW UI framework has gotten us, how we got here, what we don't like, what we do like, and what we want to fix, and how

  • 10000 ft view of how VisualWorks UI framework fits together, do's and don'ts

  • Rolling your own widgets. The old way. And the new way.

  • Stand at the front of the room and let people throw bread rolls at me

or something completely different?

Private or public responses are fine, and thanks for them.
