Hi Brian,
Sounds like an interesting talk.  I assume you are including one of the more
compelling reasons for PostgreSQL vs. MySQL, which is licensing:

MySQL:  GPL 2.0.  Free but with some very strict obligations.
PostgreSQL:  BSD 2.0.  Free and with very simple obligations.

This is not an important issue for developing software for personal or
in-house use, but a critical decision for the development of any software to
be distributed or sold outside one's own organization.

Cheers,
Dennis Clark
