Speakers who registered late for LCA2016 were provided with artistic impressions of popular songs to help motivate them.
This is a list of known motivation lyrics.
Round 1 - Haiku
Registration list - Speaker names display shyly; "Not yet registered" Speaker Liaison whispers gentle reminder "reg-is-ter" - and bows Like drifting pollen, Registrations find their place Harmony in code.
Round 2 - No Diggity (Blackstreet)
Aha Awesome Speakers,
It appears that the Haiku has not quite done the trick. So we shall try hip hop lyrics instead.
(to the tune of No Diggity by Blackstreet)
It's going down, fade to linux.conf The Speakers got no rego, gotta make 'em, Sign up quick, no doubt, I put it down, never slouch As long as my rego can vouch A 401 couldn't catch me straight up Tell me who can stop when conf making moves, Attracting talks like a magnet Giving 'em eargasms with my mellow accent Still moving this flavour With the homies Rusty and Tridge The original hack/makers
Please complete your registration. Or I may have to use Justin Bieber songs ;-)
Round 3 - Beauty and a Beat (Justin Bieber)
Hello again Awesome Speakers,
(Speakers who have registered have been dropped off this list, except for Paul Fenwick, who has requested to receive all future emails of this type, and who specifically requested the use of a Justin Bieber song. We love you, Paul.)
Round #1 - Haiku and Round #2 - Blackstreet have resulted in almost all registrations now being complete. We are now moving to Phase 3 of Operation Speaker Rego: Beliebers.
Please find your motivational lyrics below.
