Here’s the thing,
Tons of great info gets shared at conferences, but by the end you are so overwhelmed with information that you can’t remember the details of the sessions. Afterword, you set off to refresh your memory, but the conference content is strewn all over the internet: video is on YouTube and Ustream; slides are on SlideShare and Scribd; notes are hiding on personal blogs. Conference websites are terrible and aren’t any help either. Finding this stuff is a pain.
The idea is for a central site and service around conferences and talks. I call it Oregato . Each conference/talk gets it’s own mini-site, which includes basic conference info (date, location, topic, etc) and a page for each session. Session pages again have basic session info (date, speakers, topic, etc) as well as the ability for anybody to add content to them. Content can include video, audio, presentation slides, pictures, and notes. Similar to a wiki, anybody can create a conference site, session page, and attach content. Conference coordinators can claim their conference page and gain access to additional features (branding, moderation, stats, etc.).
