While I agree with Edd that the conference organizer's job is not to
build web systems it is the Foundation Board's job to seek out solutions
which both fit the need and are in-line with the community's
expectations and values.  It is clear that there are other solutions
available and we need to consider them.  

Can we get a detailed list from the conference committee on what their
requirements are for such a system so that the board members may discuss
this at the upcoming meeting?  I will push for an action item to get
someone to evaluate the different options, report back to the board and
make a decision in a timely manner.
