I've submitted Fedora Remix to OSCON for now.  I'll be looking at the
others soon, but I think we should get a few more people involved and
have a presenter at each.

Also, to build upon David's point regarding originality, most talks
from Fedora a licensed freely (usually CC-BY-SA) and to that point,
I've been using Paul Frields 'Fedora Remix' slides.  He's got them up
on his fedorapeople.org page.   I guess we should get him to put it on
the Presentations page[1]
