I just signed up on this mailing list, hence late for this thread of exchanges.
here is the story in short: at one dinner a few of us (Iljitsch, Christian, and some others) pondered how to add a bit more fun into IETF week, especially at the end of a hard working week. No matter where IETF is held, there are always some people who get stuck for Friday night.  So this idea, inspired by SIGCOMM "Outrageous Opinion Session", came out: how about we do an IETF OO session *after* the last officially scheduled session -- all real work is done and we can relax and have some fun:-) 

Thanks to Iljitsch for the idea of an outrageous dinner today. Very unfortunately I wont be able to participate due to other obligations.  Have fun!

We got the blessing from Russ but were advised to start a real OO session at next IETF, so that people can be properly informed and prepared.  Whoever interested in helping organizing it, please drop me a note.  The solicitation for OO presentations will be announced during Beijing IETF.  Meanwhile I also plan to collect a few slide decks from past SIGCOMM OO sessions, in case some people want to see a sample to get inspired.
