Can I bulk import talks? I'd like to use SpeakerRate for all the talks at Aloha on Rails, but would like to avoid typing them all in by hand. Any tips? Mahalo!

This goes along with the requests for an API (http://getsatisfaction.com/pointless/....

In response to the ability to bulk import talks, we are currently working on a method to bulk import tool that would allow the event creator to import a data file (.csv) with all talk information into SpeakerRate. We're hoping the tool will be ready to go soon.

Very glad something like this is in the works. While a full API solution would still be best, allowing easy import via a CSV file is a workable solution. This should be able to handle updates to existing talks for the event as well (hopefully). That would allow organizers to rearrange talks within the event and keep the SpeakerRate data synchronized easily.
