Lanyrd - the social conference directory
My wife and I launched this site last week - we've been building it while travelling around Morocco on our honeymoon. Search or browse for conferences (mostly web / technology at the moment, but the site is rapidly growing outside its original niche). Sign in with Twitter and it will tell you about conferences your Twitter friends are attending or speaking at. You're also encouraged to build up your own speaker profile of conferences you have presented at or will be presenting in the future.

Here are some of my favourite pages: - conferences in Uruguay (we have three listed right now) - Science conferences in the UK - upcoming BarCamps worldwide - Online conferences - Jeffrey Zeldman's profile page, includes books written as well - a book page, includes "meet the authors at" section - demonstrates our neat faceted search interface

Ooo nice! Is there a way to integrate this with Facebook or conferenceAlerts?

Pretty cool!

(Anyone else fighting the urge to call it Lanyrd Skanyrd?)

Yup, I thought of Skynard too...hehe.

I like the idea of the site, but don't like the default Twitter login without any other option. Kinda lame, if you ask me...
