I suggest you ...

Enable a user to view/share a list of "My Interests"

I wanted to share the sessions I'm interested with my team, but was unable to find the means to easily do so (without manually parsing the html source of course)

    I like the idea a lot, it would help speakers know what people are interested in etc. the code base would support user profiles and this could be added to it but would you want to see a fill user profile or just a simple name, twitter name & Interests?

        I think I misunderstood your question at first.

        "...would you want to see a fill user profile or just a simple name, twitter name & Interests?"

        When sharing "My Interests", the content would probably need to be different based on the service.
        * Twitter should probably be something simple, with a link to the user's profile page (that shows interests) "Check out <username>'s session interests over at #codecamp <profilePageUrl>" or something to that effect.
        * Facebook might just list all the interests, with a link to the code camp website
        * In an email, you could provide much more information along with the list of interests, such as name, twitter and bio.

        I think a full profile would be pretty neat. It could display sessions attended at past code camps, and other useful information.

        In terms of the suggestion, it would be great to share a given list of interests via twitter, facebook and/or email. The main benefit here is to help spark interest in code camp itself, by encouraging friends and colleagues to attend as well.
