@brian_kephart it's definitely chaotic, but mostly due to the number of people (~800).
Each session has its own channel for discussing the talk and Q&As; all the sponsors also have their own channels too, and are hosting interesting discussions about their product or job openings.
And everyone is also free to create birds-of-feather channels (e.g. "activejob-and-beyond", "crystal", "neurodiversity") and they all seem fairly active
