In the OSGeo Foundation Board Meetings we tend to stick to chatting
because it gives us an automatic log. Way easier than trying to make a
protocol and follow and contribute to the dialog at the same time.

Sometimes it is helpful to jump on the phone half way throught to
discuss in words or ybout sensitive stuff.

Just my 2 (Euro) Ct.
