Maintaining old Plone sites just for the sake of it makes no sense. Letting
the discourse that is any community's lifeblood and memory slide toward the
memory hole also makes no sense.

Yes, I think a flat mirror would be a great solution.

The info is there, but links are broken, it's negative marketing for Plone
as brand, and devalues the work of organisers and speakers.

Realising that I have to go and trawl vimeo and slideshare was sad.

As Chris says, there's room for improvement. For conference sites or
proceedings, there would need to be some community consensus & guidelines.
I'd like to help, e.g. with editing on Plone.org
