Dear Twitter: can you suggest ways to digitally enhance conferences?

I asked this question yesterday as I was searching for inspiration prior to a meeting about a conference I’m helping organise. There are so many ideas here, it seems unlikely we’ll be able to adopt many of them. I’m keen to explore ways to go beyond the usual repertoire of filming talks and live tweeting though.

One that occurred to me which wasn’t on this list was the role of ‘community reporters’ (or something to that effect) in which some people commit to live blogging and live-tweeting systematically from their own accounts. This could then be incorporated into a post-conference round up, alongside the podcasts, videocasts and presentations.
