Hi Ron

I like the idea and will come along.

I can roll out my talk on DNS, if needs must, but its a little dull.

However if people are interested, I'm thinking of putting together a talk
on PostgreSQL.
This would be more along the lines of what make PostgreSQL so awesome and
why you
should throw away MySQL and all this new fangled NoSQL stuff.

As such I'm thinking of covering things like:
  - Why you should care about your data
  - How MySQL violates your constraints and some of its amusing oddities
  - Database functions, how handy they are and what awesome things you can
do with them
  - Flexible schemas using the new JSON type

I'll try to keep the talk light and amusing hopefully.

Would people be interested in such a talk?
