> Trying to break it up into 30-45 minute meetings covering defined topics in each is likely going to be better for everyone. Those who want to discuss a particular topic won't have to wade through hours of other material, those who are up late to attend will not have to extend that into wee hours of the night, and we're likely to get more focused arguments and results from a shorter meeting than a ridiculously long one.
