Text chat:

Eric Hanchrow 8:56 PM I’m so much more comfortable with text than video … if other people join, will I see their icons?
me 8:56 PM Yup. Text chat is totally cool, it gets saved and posted too. and I can read things into the audio for people just listening to the stream (Livestream viewers won’t see the text chat during the hangout – only people in the actual Hangout will see it, so that’s why I repeat cool stuff. )
Eric Hanchrow 8:57 PM uh … so “livestream” is something different from Hangout? :-\ livestream must be “read only”
me 8:58 PM Yup, livestream (Youtube, etc.) is read only
Eric Hanchrow 8:58 PM ah dinnertime already!

Dave Marquardt 10:13 PM Sacha, what was the name of that mode that scatters tasks? I think I saw something like that in orgbox…. Now I see it in the Org info. Thanks! Thanks for setting it up!

    RE: “using org babel of a git dashboard”

    I highly recommend the myrepos tool (https://github.com/joeyh/myrepos) by the accomplished Joey Hess. It’s an excellent tool for wrangling a large collection of local git repositories!

    Relying on logic in myrepos could simplify the shell logic baked into your git org dashboard files. I’ve left George a note on his blog.

    • Neat! That “mr status” command looks pretty handy. Thanks for sharing!

    How are you doing the indexing/links-to-do-direct-jumps-to-specific-times-in-video?
    I might like to do the same (in this case with an AWS re:Invent video on YouTube.

    Thanks.
