I'd go farther than that - I'd say, take no more than 5 minutes to
describe what it is and give a short demo, and then ask for other
members to share their experiences with it - which would be a good
time for people like Karsten to chime in...  It's meant to be more
interactive and not just a lecture.

Also, the topic for the following month needs to be announced so that
people can tinker with it, and have something to contribute the next
