It's hard enough to get speakers to deliver slides. Honestly, getting much more is unlikely.

That being said. If you want to take ownership we'd love for someone to get more out of our
speakers. Even coordinating the slide collection would be helpful.

Subject: Re: ApacheCon papers?

I was thinking along the lines of the Semantic Web Conference  and other
technical conferences that produce a "Proceedings" journal (without
ApacheCon having to go through the expense), where they publish the papers
after the conference as a journal, ApacheCon could publish the papers
online.  it would  be more work for the speakers who wish to participate
but would probably lead to wider dissemination of their ideas and findings.
