Jay:

I really would like to provide a teleconference means for this meeting but our
experiences have been that the nature of this kind of discussion, i.e. free form
and spontaneous, does not allow a parade of people to the speakerphone to talk.
We would need to have microphones in front of every two or three people in order
for you on the other end of the phone to be able to hear.

Do you have any siggestions on how to leverage technology to make this workable
without suppressing the discussion?

Any chance this important session can be conducted via telecon for
those of us not fortunate enough to make the meeting?

The keyword "Linux Printing" has piqued my interest...  ;)
