While recently seeking feedback on the conference schedule from Josh
Berkus and David Fetter I was asked, "Are there going to be lightning
talks?". To which I replied, "What?".

I know of lightning talks; in a similar manage of how I know of the
existence of competitors to PostgreSQL. They are there in the
background fog of consciousness while posing no perceivable threat but
still trying to maintain their significance.

The threat here of course is that West won't have lightning talks. So
let's solve that threat now! Enter the call for lightning talks.
Lightning talks are 5 minute, micro talks on any topic of any regard as
long as it is somehow related to PostgreSQL (Pythoners I am calling to
you). If you have something you are willing to stand in front of people
for no more than 5 minutes (or you will be gonged) and talk about this
is your chance.
