I would personally be surprised if a cluster analysis or principal
analysis of the RFID data didn't reveal some means of separating the
meeting sessions like this.
Whether this is a good idea is another matter.
Indeed, I thought the primary argument for the Big Giant Meeting was
supposed to be that cross-pollination of areas and WGs was beneficial.
If we then try to schedule things so that people can conveniently come
for just a few days (and, presumably, use the day passes that have
just been invented), then that purported benefit goes away. In that
case, I predict we'd quickly move to WG- or area-specific meetings
with no or fewer Big Giant Meetings. (I am agnostic on whether that's
a good idea, but it might be.)
