I'm sure daylife has an extra chair somewhere for a presenter. :)

Come and present.  Unpolished projects make great lightning talks.
The important thing about a lightning talk is that you have to come up
with a purpose - in this case probably to getting opinions on your
project or to get excited about it, and then make sure you focus your
talk on that.  Don't add information that doesn't get that point
across, and don't be afraid of being under 5 minutes.  But
_definitely_ don't go over 5 minutes!

Consider yourself signed up.

Cheers,
Dave
