Time Management

I tend to give SMOFCons a lot of slack on many things, but why is it that year after year that we do the Fannish Inquisition without starting on a list of how many groups are expected to present divided by the amount of time available and applying the time limits according, and having a moderator who can enforce them and make people move along when their time is up.

I understand the Ig Noble Prizes have an eight-year-old girl who, after an acceptor's speech exceeds one minute, comes on stage and loudly announces, "I'm bored!" We need that sort of person here.
