Lightning Talks announcement

After receiving more then 70 lightning talk proposals, we had to make the hard choice of selecting 34 of them.

Saturday, 14u - 15u: digital rights and restrictions (Openingtalk, EFF and OpenTC)
Saturday, 15u - 16u: profiling/scaling (IOGrind, ZapCat and Terracotta)
Saturday, 16u - 17u: digital knowledge (Dacco, Indywiki and Kettle)
Saturday, 17u - 18u: data management (Alfresco, Stylebase for Eclipse and Bongo)
Saturday, 18u - 19u: discoveries (OpenAFS, GGZ and Squaek)

Sunday, 09u20 - 10u: integrations (Cloudbridge and Sepia)
Sunday, 10u - 11u: virtuality (Ganeti, Open VM Tools and VIEW-OS)
