I'd *love* to see more non-usual-suspects give talks at *BSD conferences.

#EuroBSDCon presentation deadline is coming up on Sunday! Do you do cool stuff with #OpenBSD, #FreeBSD, #NetBSD (or any #BSD)? PS, yes you do. You should submit an abstract for a 45 minute presentation, and give a talk.
Travel, hotel, and entry will be covered for selected speakers!
