To expand on that briefly, you tend to follow a longtime pattern of
doing something like this:

Hey, everybody!  I have a great idea:  Somebody _else_ do a big bunch of
stuff.  [Details of said stuff.]  Isn't that going to be exciting?

That's your act, and it's perfectly OK, but we all know it know, and
we've learned that it's always going to be somebody else's task, that
you're not going to do anything useful, but rather sit there pointing to
other people suggesting they do it.

Please prove me wrong.  Line up a few speakers for a few upcoming SVLUG
meetings.  Be an asset rather than a timesink.
