@zelig will be doing my best to connect it all together and get developers frothy in delight at the prospect of launching Ethereum based companies...agree a lot of work needs to be done

Anyone heard of or know anyone using 'Ethkey'...it is marked as 'deprecated' in the documentation...can we take it out altogether now?

@bobsummerwill @zelig hey Bob/Vik your thoughts on embedding video? Classics like "Vitalik Explains Ethereum" can be added with code like this: .. raw:: html
<embed>
  <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TDGq4aeevgY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Go for it.
We are only REALLY worrying about the HTML output, but there is also a generated PDF and ePub which I guess we should see what that does for. In general, I don't those generated docs look great for us anyway, because we haven't focused on them at all.

@bobsummerwill @zelig ok, pushed up first rev of embedded videos...will be working to match them throughout the text in the coming weeks
@bobsummerwill @zelig question about the documentation and the HF: currently there is only small mention of forking and none about the controversial, recent HF - should there be? I think there should because 1) is instructive 2) not having it feels like avoidance and 3) in business when u have ppl trash-talking re an issue of consequence, it's best to factually discuss it. Thoughts?

@zelig hey Viktor, are you against embedding in general or just for this topic?
