Looks right so far.

I see.  That makes sense for the general case.

In our case, with multiple speakers, do I collect everyone's text and
put it on a web page?  Or does each speaker put their info on a web
page and give me their url and I put links to those urls on a web page
and give that url to the group site?  I guess the later is better so
that people can post their slides and keep control of their info.
That would be the Cascading Stanford Model?  And it is the
object-oriented model since everyone keeps their own data, surely a
better experience for everyone and a better product.

I expect that we are working out a pattern for other talks, something
to suggest to the next speaker/organizer of multiple speakers.

I guess there have been web pages for talks, but they disappear
completely when the talk is done?

A nice thing about the Stanford model is that there will be an archive
of the talks.

Does the Stanford model work for you Aahz?  It would be less work for
you and has the other benefits noted above.

Again, thank you Dennis for you help.
