Ok thanks, but you didn't provide the email address. However I guess I 
can get that from the archive anyway.

I think really going by the phone call I had, that he wanted me to do a 
longer talk. However then I said how I hadn't done this kind of thing 
before, so the Lightning talk got suggested.

Indeed Lightning talks are short about 15 minutes or so, and so topics 
have to be quick and to the point, especially if going to leave any time 
for questions.

A Lightning talk is usually a summary or something like that I think, of 
a project at an event for example, and as you would probably expect the 
Lightning talks will be at the end of this event.

Knowing me once I got started and feeling comfortable enough I would 
probably want more than 15 minutes or so really. I mean I talked about 
Desktop Linux and so on, with someone for three hours and a bit when I 
went on a podcast for my first time last year for example. Of course 
that's different since it was done on the computer.

Also when I did that talk about Tim Berners-Lee and web standards in 
2005 in front of one of my college classes, it was only meant to be 
about 10 minutes, but was 20 or so.

It seems that I could do a longer talk or presentation and a lightning talk.

I'll email more about this event soon, once I have found out a bit more. 
Currently waiting for another email reply from him.

I thought about it earlier, but I would actually want the talk/s I am 
doing to be recorded, so that I can watch it myself, and show lot's of 
people, well if I am happy enough with it :). Not told the person 
organising the event this yet, but something that can be done later on.
