[PLUG] Suggestion for covering open source project's history before 8:00

Hey guys,

As we've been discussing in other threads, it is very valuable to talk about an open source project's history, or the history of prior projects, during a plug talk.

However, this makes the talk last more than 1 hour.

Since all 3 locations have people typically arriving at 7:00, but the talk starts at 8:00, how about we give the presenter the option of covering the history from either 7:30 to 8:00 or 7:45 to 8:00?

Then at 8:00 there would be a brief refresher on the history for those walking in, or eating noms outside the classroom at plug north.

The recording could begin at 8:00, or earlier if the presenter prefers.

Personally, I am going to finish preparing my 1-hour long fedora talk for 10/10/2015 with only 1 or 2 slides on Fedora's history. (Where history == prior to the last ~4 years; when many cool things have happened and many challenges have arisen (cough: "why did Red Hat really acquire CentOS?")). Then I'll see if I have time to prepare 15-30 minutes of history.
