I've done a few little talks over the last year; some lightning, some 
longer. Do you think any of those would be useful for OSDC, if I fleshed 
one out into a longer, more in-depth piece?

  * (some pun on forms and perl) - HTML-FormHandler talk
  * A comparison of some simple tasks in Perl, Scala and Go.
  * An beginners guide to Moose.

Erm, what else have I rambled on about lately?
Is there anything people would like to see that maybe I or we could 
knock up into a talk in time?

The problem is that I don't feel like I'm a good speaker; my talks are 
just blocks of text with me explaining them, like a lecturer.

As an aside, could we convince Damian Conway to do his 
natural-language-parsing with RecDescent talk at OSDC? It was very 
impressive, and I'm sure would be, again, a very popular talk.
