It would also be great if conferences would make a list of every book mentioned in every talk. There were so many mentioned over the past few days, and I didn't get them written down. I remember Building Secure Software by Viega and McGraw, but that's it. At Lawrence Lessig's panel discussion yesterday, someone (David Henkel-Wallace, I think) mentioned a certain book as "the one thing you should read tomorrow to help fight outrageous copyright laws." (or something like that.) But I can't remember the book he mentioned. Anyone?

(This is another good reason to have a centralized note-swapping space.)

Very good suggestion regarding the booklist. An enterprising person could set themselves up as an Amazon associate and make a few dollars as an associate...

I think the book was "The Mystery of Capital"

Thanks, Tim. The conference could also ask for a book recommendations list before the talks and have them for sale in the hall. Though these aren't all O'Reilly books, so that might not go over so well.
It's a very good suggestion. What generally works in these cases is that you just write down the email address of the lecturer and ask him/her after the meeting. In our field, they are more than happy to provide an answer. But it would be indeed very good to have a Website/Weblog where everybody can upload their list of references. The problem is that in some fields it's mostly papers so you still need to do some work to find those. Thanks for hosting the comments.
