  1. Ask them about what belongs in a plugin and what belongs in a theme! :D No, just kidding…
    Ask them about what do they thing about the one fee and lifetime support… no wait… what about what do they think about abandoned plugins on the repository, or the lack of a robust “uninstall-and-delete-db-crap” on most of plugins. Uhm… You know what? Ask them about bacon. ;)

    Can’t wait to meet you! I’ll be there speaking about CSS Preprocessors like SASS.

    A “panel discussion”, on themes & plugins eh? A selected set of figures picked for their relevance & experience? And then there’s a mixed audience?

    And the moderator gets to … keep things perking? Challenge assumptions & disturb complacency? Keep it entertaining for the audience?

    1.) “Core vs Plugin”. Matt Mullenweg in years past sang the praises of a small core that does little …. WordPress trending to become almost a mere Language. There’s been some compromising … but that may have come to a halt, with the version 3.6 fiasco.

    2.) “Industrial Users vs Freelance Developers”. It is very important that WordPress cater to major power-hitters in the big-time online publishing world. These entities often have their own inhouse WordPress shop … they don’t typically buy themes or plugins, they custom-build them, on-premise, using their salaried WP staff.

    3.) “Websites vs Social”. How to meet the challenge … which Matt Mullenweg regrets not prioritizing earlier.

    4.) “Kate Middleton vs Kim Kardashian”. Rule Number One – don’t let too many of those audience-chairs get empty! :)

  7. @Joan – That would be a good way to derail the session lol.

    @Brad Parbs – Sass is one of these new fangled terms I see everywhere but know nothing about. Maybe I’ll try and catch your session.

    @Chip Bennett – Thanks, too bad. We could have met again!

    @Ted Clayton – I’ll definitely ask the last question regarding Kate or Kim but considering the panel is made up of men and has a male moderator, not sure this would end so well.

    @Chad Warner – It’s just a week away now!

    @Michelle – If you still have your hair the same color as in your gravatar, you won’t be hard to miss :P
