[Plone-conference] Why nuke the 2014 site?

I would say this discussion is straying off the topic of the list now... but, all I will say is that we need to keep it simple, and I think a *separate* archive site for materials and outputs to the conference would be best. Something along the lines of the now-defunct plone.tv.

The issue with the actual conference sites, is that they often have specific localisations. This can often be due to payment processing requirements, co-location with other conferences, language requirements, etc. Also these sites are build 1 year apart each year. And a lot changes in the Plone world in that time! Would want to still be working on Plone GetPaid code ;) Often easier to start from scratch in latest version of Plone, or outsource the booking stuff to a 3rd party.

Even video is an issue... when I did the 2010 videos I uploaded them to Blip.tv as they were the only provider that would accept non-720p resolution videos but keep them in the native resolution and not transcode them without losing fidelity of text on the screen. They they suddenly deleted all the videos as they were no longer part of Blip.tv's future (focusing on soap operas etc). Yes we have archives of the video, but the metadata has all been lost and needs to be re-entered somewhere, which is a big and boring task.
