Yeah, but theres nothing as good as a face to face meeting. This will
be especially useful for the first meetings (future meetings could
take place on SIP/IRC though).

No. Just no. The group is about digital freedom, so it is hypocritical
to use propreitary software to hold the meetings. I for one refuse to
use something like GoToMeeting.

Of course, we could do it via IRC and SIP conference, but as I said
above, I don't think anything can compare to a meeting in person.
However, that said, it might be useful for those unable to make the
trip if they were able to join those of us who have actually met up,
using SIP and/or IRC, though that may be difficult to set up.

What are other people's thoughts on this issue?
