Sounds good to me - thanks for that Alex!

Please, people - I rely on people to let me know what they'd like to speak
about.  I try to find people who are doing interesting things or who are
knowledgeable about certain topics, but my network is small compared to your
combined knowledge.  I cannot know if there's some expert out there who'd be
able to give a talk on their favourite topic, and I can only find this
information out to a limited extent.  I am not a mindreader, and I will not
spam random people hoping to find one of these closeted experts.

Please do not email me with what you want to hear about, unless you are also
holding in front of you the person who you'd like to speak about it.  I myself
can think of arbitrary quantities of topics that I think would be absolutely
awesome for the CLUG to hear about, but with no-one volunteering to give these
talks these ideas are worthless.  I'd much rather have someone volunteer to
talk and be given a topic, than be given a topic and have no-one to talk about it.

I know everyone at this point also stares at their toes and mumbles something
about not knowing very much.  This is, in fact, untrue.  You probably know
plenty - you just think it's all common knowledge, or too trivial to be worth
talking about.  This is, again, untrue.  What you think trivial is someone
else's new discovery.

I'm volunteering to do a talk for the June CLUG meeting on the boot process.
I'm no expert on it, but I know enough to help other people - and in turn I'm
expecting to have other people teach me the bits I miss.

Presenting at CLUG meetings is an excellent chance to teach the community,
improve your presentation skills, and learn new things in the process.
Please, please, email me to present on something!

Thanks in advance,
