   With WordCamps Europe and US now expecting thousands (plural) of people,
 we're beyond a point where simple alphabetical presentation makes sense.

   ... it's probably time we were looking ahead to a proper, ideally
 faceted, search function.

 I agree, so here's a proposed solution:

 * For lists over a certain number of items, include a search box at the
 top, powered by [http://listjs.com/ List.js] (MIT licensed) or something
 * Show a random subset of the attendees by default, perhaps with a toggle
 for sorting alphabetically.
 * Typing in the search box instantly replaces the random list with the
 attendees whose names match the search term.
 * Include a "Show More" button at the bottom of the list, so if you want
 to browse instead of search, you can click the button to reveal a
 subsequent chunk of attendees, similar to Jetpack's Infinite Scroll
 functionality when there are footer widgets.

 The implementation of this would be to still load the markup for all of
 the attendees list items (since it's cached and the Gravatars are now lazy
 loaded), but initially only reveal a certain number of them. The
 functionality could be adjusted with additional shortcode attributes.

 @s1m0nd is this in line with what you were thinking?
