Hi Oleg,

Thank you for suggesting this because this has been on my to do plate for
Q3. Obviously JW planning has been consuming me but this is high on my
priority list to do next.

I wanted to find a way to connect speakers and JAM. I was thinking of
creating a google form as there's no fee (i think) vs the herokuapp ($).
Speakers could submit their talk via the form, JAM leaders would be able to
see the submission as it comes in and speakers can choose which JAM they'd
like to speak at. The form would include the ability to submit to any JAM,
Online JAM included.  This form would require similar info as the CFP one.
My hope is that this will help drive activities at the local JAMs, make it
easier on JAM leaders wrt to talks coming to them vs. them having to search
for it.

I have not used google form but will start looking into its capabilities,
etc. But i agree meetup.com isn't good for this.

Short answer is YES! i'm in :o). Once JW activities die down a bit I will
start working on this. In the meantime, if you have suggestions pls do
