Hums are not just used in WG meetings.
BOFs and BOF-like WGs (dispatch) have rather different kinds of hums (which occasionally happen in normal WGs as well when the issue at hand is whether some work should be undertaken).

I don’t understand why we don’t take these different use cases of hums and take each to the digital world, instead of a single skeuomorphic tool that doesn’t quite capture most of these use cases and takes too long even for those where it does.

(OK, we got what must have been the first “fortissimo” hum in a meetecho BOF today, and we managed to not use the tool where it wasn’t appropriate.  I could say that the tool has been *very* good to me today, so I’m not making the point very forcefully, but it is still the right thing to do.)
