Just to emphasize this point, history has shown that only a small  
number of people, namely the conference organizers, spend any non- 
negligible time working on *content* for the site.

As such, this organizer's group should be free to make any technology  
choice they want.  The idea that "if we had a better tool, people  
would write more" has proven itself to be wishful thinking.  People  
simply haven't been motivated to write content, IMO, and use the  
website technology as an excuse for lack of contribution.  (I'm as  
much to blame on this as anybody.)
