    Submitting to Systems We Love by Bryan Cantrill

    Are you tantalized by Systems We Love but you don't know what proposal to submit? For those looking for proposal guidance, my advice is simple: find the love. Just as every presentation title at !!Con must assert its enthusiasm by ending with two bangs, you can think of every talk at Systems We Love as beginning with an implicit "Why I love..." So instead of a lecture on, say, the innards of ZFS (and well you may love ZFS!), pick an angle on ZFS that you particularly love. Why do you love it or what do you love about it? Keep it personal: this isn't about asserting the dominance of one system—this is about you and a system (or an aspect of a system) that you love.

To determine the program, I am honored to be joined by an extraordinary program committee: hailing from a wide-range of backgrounds, experience levels, and interests—and united by a shared love of systems. So: the call for proposals is open—and if you have a love of systems, we hope that you will consider submitting a proposal and/or joining us on December 13th!
