Conference Education

Development Environment Setup:
* Requires PostgreSQL database (full-text searching)
  - brew install postgres
    - follow homebrew instructions to initialize database
    - database.yml exmaple:
        development:
          adapter: postgresql
          host: localhost
          port: 5432
          database: confed_development
          schema_search_path: public
          encoding: utf8

        test:
          adapter: postgresql
          host: localhost
          port: 5432
          database: confed_test
          schema_search_path: public
          encoding: utf8
    - you need to build your initial indexes using:
        rake texticle:create_indexes
        - run this rake command anytime an index is added or the indexes change


Goal:
Have a main source for video/presentation slides of conferences

Ideas:
* Talk show page would ideally have video and slides embedded
  * Title, conference info, description of talk
  * Information on speaker
* Conference view would ideally have talks presented in order that they happened. 
* Speakers should be referenced throughout the site so that someone could pull up a specific speaker and see all presentations
* subdomains for conferences?
* allow a conference to style their scoped page
* speaker rating system... I believe there are already services for this, maybe we can take advantage of api
* searchable and/or tagging system
* if there is demand, a conference page could be created as a placeholder so only the video/slide content would need to be embedded when ready
* Is there any reason user group content would not fit into this service as well?

* What are the most used video services for conference videos?
  * Vimeo
  * Blip.tv
  * Viddler
* What are the most used slide sharing services
  * Slideshare

Obviously it will take some curation on our part at first, but hopefully it will provide a great service to many communities and people will want to add their content on their own
