absolutely, this is really important. the germany speaking area 
certainly has this problem.
we should definitely make it 90% english - otherwise it is not useful at 
all. we want to talk to all people not just to some.
in general, as an austrian it is good to speak english anyway to make 
sure that the germans can understand me at all :).

i share your concerns - we will do it in english whenever it is possible 
to attract as many people as possible.
prato was a really good conference. we should take this as a shining 
example.
