Which seems better than the older systems we have tried.

+1 to that. 50 - 100 matches at most please, otherwise it tends to blur a bit after a while.

When reviewing I did run into a few minor issues:
- Some talks gave away the speakers name, but most were anonymous. Sometime the name is important
/ most of the time it is not. Perhaps best to edit the occasional name out for the review
process? But do you really want to miss out on say Jim's Apache Way talk because he only put
in a one line description? 
- Hard to compare totally unlike talks how do you rate a talk in diversity vs a talk on the
internals of the HTTP server?
- Similar subject talks didn't come up as often as I like to be compared with each other.
there was 3 or 4 Apache ways talks but I don;t think I managed to directly compare them.
- I would of really like to see the extra info the speaker submitted (not so much the name
and bio) but why this talk in important to Apache and why people would attend. Seems useful
to know that.
