I think that actually most people there will probably not be so much
interested in the theory behind twisted as opposed to what
twisted can do for them...now. Mathematicans can be very practical you know ;-)

I think you're right that giving an broad overview of the concepts
behind twisted is a good idea.

Can give a link to your slides when you think it's ready? I would love
to read them.
