While We Were Meeting

We all know how much time and money meetings consume.
So this is a meeting meter.
However in addition to the money cost, it’s also important to get some perspective on everything else that was going on in the world . . . While We Were Meeting:
Births, deaths, tons of CO2 emitted, forests cleared, cell phones sold, food produced, messages sent etc.
Great app - needs just one tweak!
This is a lovely app,and by far the nicest display of all the meeting timers in the app store right now. The only thing I'd ask for is the ability to create resources that can be selectively added to meetings. Right now, it seems like for every meeting, all of your saved resources are used, which means that you need to remove or create resources before every meeting - a time waster itself. I'd love to be able to set my resources (staff, rooms, etc) and then right before I start a new meeting, pick from that menu of resources to indicate who is in this particular meeting. If this feature already exists, it's not made very clear.
I would give it five stars if in the preferences I could define resource types I commonly need, then for that meeting select the resources I defined who might attend that particular meeting. For example, I define VP, Dept Head, Middle Mgr, Employee but in this mtg I only want to count 2 - VPs, 3 - Dept Heads and 5 - Employees sitting in the meeting. That would save me from entering in the same data for different meetings more than once.
Useful and informative
A neat app that will give you quite a bit of information about (user-choosable) world events while your meeting goes on.
With so much going on in the world during a meeting, not to mention its rapidly increasing cost, this app may even convince people to shorten their gatherings and keep them more to the point...
