One fallback might be to do a panel on MySQL -- I can't do a
presentation myself, but I could sit on a panel of 3-5 people
and try to answer questions. What would make this work would
be to try to gather the questions ahead of time: solicit some
questions on the discussion list, which would also give the
panel members a chance to prepare a bit. Also solicit panel
members -- maybe you'll find a non-regular who actually knows
something and will step up.
Two more advantages to a Q&A:
1) It's too big a topic to do a ground-up beginners tutorial,
and if you tried you'd wind up boring everyone who already
knows the simple stuff. Q&A would give you something for
2) Q&A focuses better on what people actually want to know
(or at least think they want to know).
