You are not the only one. Or "What Xubuntu is, how has it grown up and
how to get involved".

I think we should try to keep a presentation which involves the great
community (read: more than one guy talking) but without making it
overloaded and messy. This means we have to plan this before *in a
group*, not just throw parts of the presentation to somebody. Also, this
way we wouldn't tell the same things over and over again.

I definitely want to collaborate. It's not a problem if you can't plan
much beforehand, because we can always plan together in a group and I
suppose we also want some kind of Q&A -part.
