     Meeting Coordinators,
     
     This is kind of a nit, however it would be better if we planned for 
     it.
     
     At the Tucson meeting someone ordered a phone line and I was surprised 
     by an extra $125.00 on the bill.
     Please do not order any expensive extra meeting room facilities 
     without checking with the meeting coordinator.
     
     Thanks,
     Alan

I'll arrange for a phone line Tuesday night in Denver.
     
Sounds like a good effort. I might even volunteer to moderate. One comment, 
however. I anticipate it will be taxing (just as it is to record the minutes) to
participate and moderate simultaneous. This style of meeting protocol would 
appear to have the inherent characteristic of narrowing information bandwidth 
just as the discussion gets hot!
     
Guess it may be better than naught.

I have created a "Group" at www.egroups.com for the Printer Working Group. 
eGroups provides a java based chat system and other tools that we might find 
useful.  I'm not sure how we can use this yet, but we might start giving it a 
try if we have dial-up access in the meeting rooms.  Harry: Can you check into 
getting an analog line for the Tuesday night session in Boulder.  Using this 
tool for our brainstorming session in Denver would require someone to join the 
group, bring a laptop and be prepared to type in what is happening in the 
meeting room and also feed any comments from the chat into the meeting room. 
Any volunteers?
     
In addition to chat, eGroups provides a decent publically accessible calendar. 
It would be great if people would add standards meetings and other events they 
are aware of to the calendar so we can avoid scheduling problems.
