Make me a speaker

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007 at 3:29 pm

Just by chance I stumbled over a really cool idea and wiki, namely Make me a speaker. The idea of the wiki is to help people find mentoring and opportunities to give some public speeches about web standards.

The wiki also allows you to share experiences, give tips and connect to other people with the same interest. As the idea is simply great, a lot of known speakers have already signed up to offer help and mentoring, including Molly E. Holzschlag, Jeremy Keith, Derek Featherstone, Andy Clarke and Dave Shea.

Hopefully this site will spawn a new breed of speakers and get some more people come out of the woodwork as I for one would like to see more people talk about their experiences.

The wiki was originally created by Meri Williams, who blogs at Geek | Manager.
