User profile info available to other (registered) users?

I would find it helpful if usernames on the www.code4lib.org website were hyperlinked to a profile for that user. I'm thinking in terms of the content available in the "view" and "contact" tabs of the user account. Naturally, the "edit" and probably the "track" tabs should either be disabled or better yet, not show up at all. This access might be restricted to other registered users... or not. I realize...

Breakout session ideas

People interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 60-90 minute blocks. Somebody near to the project/problem can coordinate discussion, set up hackers, tackle a challenge session topic, etc. Larger groups will get separate space, smaller groups can just spread out in the larger conference room space.

If you have an idea for a breakout topic, you can add it here. (See below the fold for the current list of suggestions.)

one more week for proposals

The deadline for proposing a talk has been extended one week to Jan. 9. We've already got several very cool proposals but more is better, and there's plenty of room for spillover in the lightning sessions and breakouts.

To submit, read this first and then follow these instructions. Especially the 75-words-max part.

Code4lib 2006 Call For Proposals

Call for proposals - Code4lib 2006

We are now accepting proposals for prepared talks for Code4lib 2006. Code4lib 2006 is a loosely structured conference for library technologists to commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge collaborations. It is also an outgrowth of the Access HackFest, wrapped into a conference-ish format. It is *the* event for technologists building digital libraries and digital information systems, tools, and software.

At least six time slots will be available for prepared talks. We will choose from among the proposals based on diversity of topics, usefulness, wow factor, and potential impact.
