Agree. TPAC has huge value because of this imo: hallway chats with any and all WGs. Even though I'm hoping I don't see Shenzhen ever again I'd probably put up with it for that simple reason.

Would also love to experiment with video conf and tools like the ones you describe. Video is getting really good for large number of us.

On some WG calls, I have a chat session open, the spec., the tracker page (issues and actions), and the email threads — all in separate unlinked windows.  But they are all web resources.  Seems like a few tricks could really integrate these so participants are not dotting around between windows all the time.
