A twitter-alike will quite probably get people's attention.  And of 
course anything that breaks the "it's good for compilers!" stereotype is 
to be commended :-)

Also on the subject of scaling, Ralf Lammel's paper on looking at 
MapReduce through a strongly typed functional lens has been quite a hit. 
A tutorial along the lines of dealing safely with lots of data, in a 
cluster of systems, would likely go down well.
