Subject Re: Weekly conference call - thoughts
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2005 20:32:56 GMT
I worry about the same problem that we have with IRC - that while  
it's a very convenient way to communicate, not everyone can make it  
and participate in the discussion, and also despite the best of  
intentions, summaries result in not everything discussed making it to  
the "institutional memory" that is the dev@ list.  It's true that e- 
mail is slow, but it does allow the time-shifting and "inclusivity",  
to coin a word...

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but it's just my $0.02....
