I think this is a good idea - although personally I am not big fan of
these social stuff, I hink it's a good way to promote open Source GIS
tools, as a lot of people outside our community will not find the other
channels, where we put our video-mateirals.
I have some practical issues regarding this:
- who administers this account?
- who actually puts the videos online?
- do we need to get additional permission from the speakers?
