I'm happy to help on this, and what you've suggested so far sounds like a pretty decent structure for the talk.

The main thing I would add in, this being a W3C conference, is a bit about where webplatform.org fits in with the rest of the W3C ecosystem as a useful part of the toolkit, and relates to the specs, the validators, the test suites, etc.

My thoughts were that we would open with an explanation on who started it, why we did, what need we saw, then do a little tour of the site, then talk about our areas of current focus (CSS properties and APIs); Janet would then take over and talk about the social aspects of the site, how we’re organized, the pillars and principles, the communication channels, and what the audience can do to help. We would end with a call to action to attend the Doc Sprint the day after the conference.
