My original intention was something more wide than just organization.. But that's a first step, let's work on this then we see where do we head from it.
I didn't know about the /CommunityArchitecture/Presentations page. It's really more like I would like /Presentations to be, with all that Abstract and Target Audience stuff. I'm not saying we should make such descriptions for past presentations, but we should structure the page so people know that there are fields that should be filled. I think those fields shoud be:
Abstract: what's this presentation about? Maybe software versions too
Target Audience: technical guys, publicity, students, etc
Date: when was it created
Format: odp, pdf, etc
Notes: general notes
(maybe people would give up when see all those fields? hehe =p)
Can we really consolidate those two pages?.. Maybe we could talk to CommunityArchitecture team to post their presentations on the new page (maybe on a session of their own).
I'll order the presentations by date in their own session and put the date on the description. We would maintain this format for these pre-our-changes presentations.
What do you think?

I would be happy to work with you.

What do you think about getting a session with the slides, organized by subject and maybe depth with the guidelines on how the presentation should flow? Slides made thinking about it, standardize, updated, revised by experts on that area in the community. It may seem like I'm talking in favor of dumb, incapable people, but it's really because there are those of us with the willing but without directions.
The workflow seems clear to me:
1) Inventory all pages on the wiki where we have presentations.
2) Consolidate everything into one page, probably living at /Presentations
3) Create a /Presentations/Archive for old or outdated talks.
4) Inventory the "current" talks into categories based on subject matter or "potential audience", and have a clear description, owner, and "last updated" field for each talk. Do this in a way that makes it easy for someone to take a slide deck, translate it, and make that translation available as well.
5) Designate someone (I volunteer) to be the overall gatekeeper who makes sure that the content we are making available is current, and that old presentations are archived when it's time.
