Sort of Oracle OpenWorld related, though more about the work I put in for the Blogger Meetup series (I, II, III, IV, V).

The really hard part about that series was trying to get all that information for all those people into one post. It took probably 5 hours (I would get distracted). Then I would try to script something, and get distracted again. Then I didn't like the way it was the same size as the rest of the text on the page. Anyway, it was a pain in the arse.

I also felt obligated to put that information in those posts. The last one I slacked on, but that could be forgiven, I guess, for putting everything both attendees and non-attendees on posts III and IV.

I really don't want to do that again.

So what is a fair alternative?

I thought it would be cool for everyone to have a home page, maybe like Google Profile, but I haven't seen that many of those passed around via links.

Since most of this content is "business" related, perhaps LinkedIn would be the best choice (when just linking to a person and not a specific article). A person's twitter handle, blog and company information is usually indicated there; a one-stop shop.

I don't necessarily like the, sometimes, 4 links

Thoughts? (After spending a week with Jake, I am now repeating him, what can you do?)
