For more than one UDS I've been a remote participant. Using Gobby over
a proxied connection (at work for example) is a painful experience,
especially from a work-supplied Windows computer. Whilst I can listen
in to conversations because icecast streams are delivered over http, I
found it impossible to contribute to documenting sessions.

Using a web based system (such as google docs or etherpad) is clearly
very much easier from many devices/platforms.

Whilst at UDS I too experienced sobby crashes, lost documents,
difficulty choosing colours, difficulty identifying documents, as
outlined by others.
