Well, on the other hand, if you have a single person filtering the
talks, then you're probably throwing out some of the good with the

Record companies believe they are acting on the behalf of quality, but
the end result is you get the same junk over and over again that the
executives like, and never something completely interesting that
wouldn't have gotten play with an executive filter.

This way, attendess have a choice. We're likely to get something
completely new and interesting out of something that probably would
have been cut...
