I would make the text more like:
"FOSDEM is a free conference to attend, and we will try to seek

And thanks for the great start ! :-) wonderful to get a nucleus to grow
2011 Brussels, FOSDEM... Your first chance ever to give a talk for

some 5 minutes. There is great benefit in having people simply stand up,
say hello, and sit down again ;-) so you get to know who they are - and

When there are too many proposals, we will have to choose, so please
give a clear description of your talk, goal and target audience.
We are going to try to arrange sponsoring for our speakers, but the
possibilities are not sure at the moment.
I would ask for a couple of paragraphs about the talk - maximum 300
words - otherwise, some will write their life story, and others two
Anyhow - thanks muchly for the nice, punchy draft :-) and leading this.
