Thanks to Mackenzie 'maco' Morgan for submitting this:

The Call For Presentations is open for exactly one month more!

Prior speaking experience is not necessary. It was the first place I ever gave a technical presentation, and the crowd is very welcoming of first-time speakers. This conference's audience is very broad, so the speaker committee tries to get a nice spread of topics. System administrators, developers, and desktop users all attend, and really, over the last two years I've noticed it's the desktop-user focused talks which are really lacking in the proposals. So, if you think you can't possibly have something technical enough to say in front of all these people without sounding silly...stop worrying! A howto presentation for using some really cool software (last year there was a Blender presentation) or anything else for home users is totally fine. I, for one, would really like to see more presentations of the sort my brother would find interesting (because I keep trying to drag him along, and if there aren't any normal-user talks, that becomes hard).

Oh, and yes, if you want to do a "team" presentation or a panel, that's cool too.
