Well, I'm sure by now you've seen the ads for the upcoming Paleo Summit (which starts a week from today). The lineup of 23 speakers is certainly a paleo who's who. I presume the plan for the summit is to make each video free for 24 hours. And after that, they'll all be behind a pay wall, right?
So my question is, what do folks think about hacking each video here on PH? If we had enough folks who would watch a video and then share their hack here, it'd be a great resource for the community. What do you think?
Update, 2/21: Hmm. Folks seemed reluctant to sign up to be reviewers, so I'll take the hint. Instead, I'll go ahead and create community wiki posts for each speaker the day before their "event" and folks can just comment.
See below. My bad!
Thanks for your enthusiasm. Been finding a lot of negativity about the summit floating around on net. Had blinders on.
You're gonna dig the summit! :)
I'm already registered for the summit. I think some in-depth hacks of each talk are totally worth it.
And yes, each talk is free for 24 hours, then you have to pay. But, if you pay the upgrade for your own files of the talks, you get transcripts and a few ebooks (including the big Whole30 guide) as well. For some people, it may be helpful.
In either case having more discussion here would be a plus for me. I'm all in favor.
Great idea Beth. So are you willing to coordinate that? I guess we just need to make sure a new thread is started each day for each new presentation? Make sure to tag them Paleo Summit along with the subject and presenter's name.
I just registered. While I don't think I'm knowledgeable enough to be a 'reviewer', I definitely want to put my vote in for the more active PaleoHackers to get in on it! I think it could be a really valuable collection of discussions, especially for people new to Paleo.
One of my favorite expressions I use in teaching is to remind the person who is explaining a topic to "put the cookies on the bottom shelf where the kiddies can get them". I know we do not eat cookies but I have been saying that for decades and do not plan to stop.
Sean, you put the cookies where all the kiddies can reach them. Each interview is wonderfully edited, clear (audio as well as content), not too long, not too short, and jam packed with vital and useful material.
Is it just me? I'm a little put off by the commercial aspect of the Paleo Summit. Free then you have to pay? Personally I don't think that's a good way to build credibility for a concept that is already under scrutiny by the collective wisdom of the general population. If these speakers have something good to say, let it be available to all, forever.
