RE: Youtube channel for CCG archives?

FWIW over at the EFWG @ToIP we post the entire recorded meeting internally then trim the video to just the presenter portion for public YouTube consumption. Having the recordings publicly available has been working well for both those that couldn’t attend the call in real time and as a promotional benefit to the presenters.

I like the "Credentials CG Youtube Channel" idea, and I am supportive of it as well.  I think the potential benefits of drawing a larger audience to CCG (in addition to other benefits that Manu has laid out) outweigh the cons.

Might there be any concerns about . . . not exactly privacy, but 
"feeding the beast"?  I.e., making it even easier for big companies to 
slurp ever more information about us all -- including our video faces 
and voices?

I don't have a stake in this particular decision, but I wonder, because 
I personally am very unhappy with the lack of governance around the use 
of personal data, especially in the USA.  Companies routinely misuse 
personal data that I provided to them ONLY for the purpose of a specific 
transaction or activity, by selling that data and/or publishing it to 
the entire world -- including to malicious actors.
