Depending on the time of the conference, I will also try to join it.
Cheers. Maria

> Hi Charlie,
> I would be keen to listen in on / participate in the conversation. I have a
> range of issues surrounding the development of educational material and would
> be interested to hear how others are addressing them.
> Concerns:--
> 1) time of meeting. My preference is not to be wearing pyjamas when  
> taking the
> call. I am in the same time zone as at least 2 of the respondents so  
> hope your
> choice of meeting time is reasonable for all participants.
> 2) means of having the meeting. Falling clearly within the Generation X, I do
> not run Skype, MSN, Pidgen, etc. So please include clear instructions of how
> to join in on the meeting. Simply stating Skype+DateTime, is not enough - at
> least for me[1].
> As outlined by Arnulf, minutes would be an advantage, so if people are unable
> to attend there is an opportunity to contribute. To this end, a chat-room
> would be better than a verbal conversation as the text can be readily saved,
> conversation streams extracted and issues with all the relevant comments
> packaged for others to comment on. These idea streams, conversations and
> directions can be placed on the Wiki or posted on the mail-list for 'lurkers'
> to read and be enticed to contribute. I have used chatzilla on  
> freenode and it
> had this functionality. I presume other technologies do as well.
> Bye-and-bye, I find it humorous that a group espousing the  
> development of FOSS
> GIS Solutions, use Skype a non-free proprietary software, to hold a meeting.
> [1] for the record, I use Ubuntu 10.04. I do not have a camera or microphone
