Some ideas for things that could happen at it:

 * Standard Bug/Translation/etc Jamming (i.e. commenting on bugs, doing
translations, etc) Pros: Worked well when we did it in DIT last year.
Cons: a bit ubuntu specific

 * Workshop/Tutorials on how to do the above (ie bug jamming etc). Pros:
also worked well when we did it last year, cons: again ubuntu specific

 * Lightening talks, about anything really. Cons: We need volunteers to
do it!

 * General programming thingie, ie people just hacking on their own
thing for their own projects, cons: a bit isolation?

 * Bug Jamming Challenge - Given X 'contestants' see who can increase
their launchpad karma the most in that 24 hours. cons: is this a bit too
macho compeditive

 * OSM mapping party, cons: central dublin is mapped well

 * Play videos from some conferences on a big(ish) screen, it's like
being at a real conference! pros: better quality talks than getting
people to do it ourselves, cons: who has a projector / large screen?
