Not sure if anyone's checked it out in the midst of all the uproar, but a group of us here at Ziba have been helping out IDSA recently to get this up and running:http://idsadiy2010.org/
It's the microsite for the upcoming IDSA conference, and I'd be curious to hear what people think. Still a work in progress, built on a Wordpress platform with a fairly narrow range of content, but it's aiming to address some of the concerns that have come up so far about information overload, navigability, visual consistency, etc.
I'd love to get feedback and opinions from the target audience (i.e. most of Core's readership), as we're going to be adding a lot more content between now and the conference in August, and are hoping to make it useful to the ID community in general, even if they're not coming to Portland.
