Most happy to help out with Speedgeeking, and I think it's a brilliant idea that will add a lot of practicality to the conference (though I did have to look it up). Makes me think of the CC jurisdiction projects session at Dubrovnik, where everyone presented what they're doing in 5 minutes.
Let us know if you need anything from us - in the meantime we'll put our heads together about who might be appropriate.

Here I attach a version I put together of the call for papers for the research workshop we plan for the iSummit. This is something I produced on my own after consulting comments posted on the icommons mailing list and on the wiki page: http://wiki.icommons.org/index.php/ISummit_2008/Research_track. Feel free to critique any aspect of this draft. I'm going out on a limb here by putting this out for discussion, but someone needs to make a start and get the ball rolling. Please help me make it better and fill in the blanks. This workshop is an experiment, and like all experiments, it may well fail. It is up to us to make it succeed.
The greatest gap currently is the lack of one or more workshop Chairs, i.e. 1-3 people who will be members of the final program committee but will also bear more responsibility with respect to the steering of the workshop and should ideally be well-known personalities with a substantial academic track record (keyword: "heavyweight"). I also feel that at least one of them should NOT be a law professor, to signal that the workshop will be multidisciplinary (even if many names that come to mind would come from Law). Feel free to nominate one or more persons for this role, irrespective of whether they are on the program committee list of this version or not.
Do we need sponsors? This could help in giving the workshop additional credibility and financial support. (Do we really need the latter? Possibly not). Can you help us get some sponsors?
To help move things forward I went out on a limb here again by checking everyone's background to make sure that people on the academic program committee have some research credentials in the form of being affiliated with a research/educational institution and having published at least one research paper in a credible journal or conference and/or having a PhD and/or having been a reviewer for academic work before. If someone is not on the list it is because I did not find any evidence of research output for this person, or because he/she has not yet stated clearly that he/she wishes to be included in the committee. However, I did include James Grimmelmann on my own initiative as I saw that he has subscribed to the list and I believe he should definitely be on the program committee :)
If anyone feels that they should be on or off either the academic program commitee or the speed-geeking committee, please let me know with an email. If you wish to be included to the academic program committee and I may not know your research work, please also provide at least some minimal evidence of research output. We are a very broad community and I know only some of you better, so please don't get mad at me if I make mistakes in how I handle this. I'm trying to be as inclusive as possible, without compromising some basic standards of peer review.
That's all for now
