Tools team:

Below is a short conversation with Tom Pusateri (the creator of the 
IETFers iOS app) about the usability of the current youtube videos and 
what we might strive for that's better.

Do any of you know people who could help us do better than we are currently?

Should we ask Meetecho what they think they could do to get closer to 
what Tom describes?
