It's not clear to me what the target audience of your presentation is.  If the
target audience is 'Average Jane or Joe', it's a lot like preaching to the
converted at FOSDEM: we're all convinced of open source already; so convinced
in fact that we develop open source software (not the D in FOSDEM).  If the
intent is to instruct developers in how to better communicate with "muggles"
on the other hand, it might fit in the "Community" track if there's room for
it on the schedule.

Everything is possible.
