Having used hangouts to attend a conference recently and had endless
agravation trying, (not so much from the hangouts themselves, but all
the flash surrounding them and their results), but recognising that
this is a useful service/facility, I am keen to help work on
developing and testing a free solution.

Is there a debconf-video session that could be used for discussing the
wider problem of good remote-conferencing tech, or should we arrange
another session? Does anyone else care about this subject (I care but
am currently clueless).

That sounds interesting as something to evaluate.
