Hello Yosem (and Greg),

Greg: I have read your eval of the TBB from last year. Will this talk be different, or include other content?

Either way, I would appreciate it very very much if it were possible to record this talk, audio, video. I am about to start my thesis in the usability of PETs tools (specifically mobile tools), and I'd like to hear what you have to say.

Thanks in advance,
