– potential interest in TT snippets
1) Submitting material to be edited by January 3rd – finding a good TT or two which would be aligned with the themes of MLK day
2) Start slow and easy: start one a month for a few months and maybe go up to one a week if there is enough editors etc. Podcast/RSS
– Putting sessions on itunes? Give files to NYU and Aaron could put them on itunes to have a distribution channel for raw stuff.
