Comments: The Speaker's Wiki: I need your help!

One of the best ideas to come out of the conference.

Say - does there happen to be a section on "how I became a conference speaker"?

As a conference organizer myself (MeshForum - http://www.meshforum.org) I welcome this new resource. I'll try to add some of the great speakers we had at MeshForum (nearly evenly split between men and woman I'm very proud to say) as only Esther Dyson is currently on the wiki.

(I'm male by the way, but also available as a speaker)

The correct URL for the wiki is:

https://www.socialtext.net/speakers/

Shannon,
That's fantastic. Exactly the effect we want.. that this wiki is a resource to help us get more interesting speaker lists with more variety. Also, please do put yourself in there.. the point is to talk about interesting people, not just women.

We've had the same "problem" with conferences in Quebec. This is a great idea!
