I really would like to see a discussion and meeting for a better (newer) media 
handling in Drupal. 

So I still volunteer for this (in addition to my relations talk, not instead 
of) media:

Title: Drupal in media communities
Description: Look at the present state of media handling in drupal. Look at 
communities around media in Drupal. Podcasting, Vodcasting, Remixing, 
Creative Commons, scattered file storage (flickr), import of media and so on. 

Talk about how the future in this should look. Are we ready for it yet?
