Interest in supporting free software, eg Linux-based, and in assisting people to transition into it, especially those who want to be rid of viruses, or who are tired of the constant need to pay for software and then pay more for upgrades.
This is an excellent venue and forum to network generally, hone presentation skills, see how micro and small businesses get going, see how to run something similar in your own suburb perhaps with a specific focus/area of interest. Prevalent themes of late have been related to business startup and product development, the internet, and software development, but there is no reason for people to gravitate into these themes. If you have interesting stuff to present beyond that, I am sure you will find it satisfying to run a session for the feedback you will get from it... (unless it is way out left field like "Techniques for elephant hunting in Peru.", or "A treatise on submarine bolts from the 2nd world war.")
