Perhaps if there is an event similar in the future - you could email / call the webmaster and offer your assistance?
Believe it or not I would have loved some help.
Ciao! I don't think it was meant as a personal criticism of the person doing the work, but rather of a slightly inward looking approach which the organisers took (the quote JK highighted is exemplary of this) - where keeping the public or media well appraised was not as important as I think it should be for a major event of this significance.
However, if you were struggling then a quick post here, on Boatmad or on the RB forums would probably have got you the offers of help you wanted. If you don't ask you don't get. I am sure if an unknown entity just volunteered their help it would either cause offence ("is my contribution not good enough") or suspicion ("who is this random person - and how much damage are they going to do to my site").
