Great idea, and it's not just a YouTube video posting--it's an ongoing
marketing effort, and one that can give lots of visibility to the
project if done right. The right keywords in the search terms and
descriptive paragraph (for example iPhone, iPod, etc.) can spark lots
of interest in the platform.

There has to be enough geek-speak in the description to interest the
hackers, yet not so much that the average person doesn't tune out, as
well as enough meaningful consumer content, explanations, and
buzzwords to catch the attention of the consumer crowd and make them
want to forward it to their friends.
