And you shall have a link to my content, once I write it.

In case my previous message wasn't clear: what I have now is a proposal 
only. It is an abstract for a presentation to fill a 50-minute time in a 
conference in October 2016. I will wait for the program committee to 
decide whether to accept this proposal. If they do, I will then write 
the actual content.

And, there will be plenty of time over the summer for UASG colleagues to 
review and improve the presentation, if you wish. The final 
presentation, licenced under CC-By or the like, will be available at the 
time of the conference.
