OA speakers bureau

The Open Access Directory (OAD) just opened an OA speakers bureau for community editing and enlargement.

Remember that OAD is a wiki. If you've ever spoken about OA at a conference or workshop, or would like to, please add yourself to this list

It's not very full today, but today is only Day One.  I hope we can make it much more comprehensive in the coming weeks.

Personal note:  Five or six years ago, an item near the top of my wish list was for the OA movement to have 100-200 people, rather than just 10-20, who could speak competently about OA.  We've definitely surpassed that goal, and now have knowledgeable advocates in every field, country, and language.  The purpose of this list is simply to help conference organizers find them.
