I'm not sure to what degree Twitter tags like "#chuckage" or "@John" would
go at the expense of characters or how sc dealt with that.

We have web-space at the forum at the EM site. EM has servers for files that
are on a very big connection in Norway. Princeton and Stanford also have
webspace that we might be able to use. I don't think any of those would even
blink at the kind of space and bandwith this is likely to take.

Indeed. There may be questions there, like to what degree a flash-based
player is suitable to present the output of a FOSS project and what
alternatives there are. As this would be great advertising for ChucK I think
we should consider both a convenient pre-rendered format as well as easy
access to the sources.

again, i think this is a great idea- nice work!!
