Hahaha!  I feel the same way!

To true.

Actually, a 20 minute talk wouldn't be bad, especially if it centered
on how CubicWeb was different.

I've made this mistake too many times.  When I first met the Django
guys, before they had released Django, I thought to myself, "Oh, great
another framework!"  When I talked to Ben Bangert before he started
Pylons, I tried to talk him out of it.  I've learned to just shut up
and listen ;)

Don't forget Pylons.  It's used at a host of companies in the BayArea,
such as Foxmarks, Metaweb, Wize, etc., and those are just the
companies I can think of off the top of my head.
