We've had a presentation archive for ages.  If it's not proper, we need to fix
that.  Currently, we just link the presentations to the schedule.  That seems
to be a natural fit.

We just email speakers directly and ask them for their presentations at the
same time we ask for their expense claims.  If all goes well, that email
should go out before the weekend and presentations will start trickling in
shortly after that.

Infrastructure is not a problem at the moment.  If you think you have too much
money, we'd be more than happy to fix that for you, however. :)

Wait patiently for another week or so. :)  Drink a beer.  Go for a walk.
Write some code.  Presentations will turn up online in due course.
