This is similar, though not *quite* the same. A while back ioerror
released FreeNote, which makes it easier to broadcast audio and video
on a hidden service. This is a pretty cool idea and works pretty well.
AND it should be pointed out that two one-way conversations can be a
two-way conversation by virtue of just sharing the links over OTR .
Scott Ainslie and I discussed the possibility of taking that basic
two-way conversation hidden service concept and making a GUI for it with
Glade+GTK. Unfortunately, neither of us really have the time or
expertise for this endeavor. I got as far as wireframing some ideas
before going face-first into developing a more time-sensitive project
. I'd love it if someone actually did this and released their
prototype as free software. There are way too many issues with
centralized services like Skype and Google Hangouts.
 Of course, if someone shares the links further, there can be privacy
