IdoSphere 2011 Sessions db available

I should say up front, I have no connection with IdoSphere 2011. I am not a presenter, sponsor or even (so far) an attendee. Instead, I am using the excuse of providing a Sessions db to work out the details of a Social Business experiment.  The experiment is creating a Virtual agenda for a Virtual conference which spans more than the actual conference.  There are archived sessions, books, webcasts, courses and people who are not at the conference, but are linked to it in one way or another.  Since I love this image, I'll use it again, but feel free to simply download the IdoSphere 2011 Sessions db and see for yourself.  Since a number of the presenters have not submitted their abstracts (tsk, tsk), there are some "Not available yet." notes, but the Additional Resources tab works very well, and the Virtual Bookstore makes even more sense when there is no physical bookstore (your purchases through the bookstore provide a very small financial incentive to keep doing this, so don't hesitate to buy all the books you want).

Let me know what you think, as I am tempted to do this for subsequent conferences such as IamLUG, ILUG, UKLUG, EntwicklerCamp, Admin2011, etc.  With each subsequent conference, the archived session store will grow (with duplicates and obsolete sessions removed), so that the related content will become more and more valuable.  At least, that's what I think.  I'd be interested in hearing what you think.
