In principle, as someone on the East Coast. I will not show up for a
meeting that might end past 5pm Eastern Time on a Friday.

I¹m not sure if someone from our team plans to attend, but there can
easily be others on the East Coast as well.

The BlackBerry team is in/around Toronto, and Bryan might want to join.
Some of Mozilla¹s mobile team is in Toronto tooŠ I¹m not sure who Brian
found.

Generally, meetings that might involve timezones should include a Doodle
poll.

Best practices for a truly global team involve avoiding scheduling
meetings that end after 5PM Eastern European time on Fridays to
accommodate people around the world who might have some form of life or
religious obligations. This roughly translates to not doing meetings on
Fridays unless they¹re really early on the West Coast (around 7am).

In the case of Cordova, we don¹t seem to have anyone in Europe, so you can
relax the time zone constraint from Eastern Europe to Eastern (that buys
you about 7 hours), but it still means a hard cut off in general of 2pm
Pacific and some not particularly great hour in China. You¹re usually
better served aiming for a night owl in China (1am) which is 1pm Eastern,
and 10am Pacific.
