You want to give a lightning talk at PGCon!

Yes, you do.  The fun, the glory, the laughter, the everlasting fame!  These can all be yours.

Be one of the "brave and true" who put together five minutes about PostgreSQL tools, experiences, forks, ideas, websites, or even (especially) jokes.    Anything from "hacking wal files" to "the PostgreSQL drinking game" is an acceptable topic for the lighting talks.   A short schedule:

	• Right Now: send your lightning talk idea to light at pgcon.org.  We'll need a title, speaker full name, speaker cell phone number, and brief (one sentence) description.
	• ASAP you send in your PDF slides for the talk.
	• Thursday, May 23, 4:00 PM: meet Magnus Hagander in the plenary presentation room for your order of speaking.
	• Thursday, May 23, 4:15PM to 5:15PM: you and the others deliver your talks

Fine print: Lightning talks are strictly five (5) minutes in length, and speakers who run over will be cut off.  PDF slides or browser access only, which will be presented on the conference laptop, so no demos, animations, private network access, or installed software.
