Aye. That's what I'm on about. It doesn't matter what you talk about -
make it interesting. Public speaking is a skill that many Linux advocates
don't have. If you aren't sure if you have it or not, keep your talk
brief, and ask for feedback. Juggle. Bring a light-show. It's not that
much to ask, is it?
