Virtual Meeting fans,

Ok! It sounds great. Now who wants to volunteer to do the typing and be in charge of the equipment at each meeting. Perhaps the "out of range" members would want to do some research on how to do it and help get donations and equipment.

Also, we would need volunteers to do the work at each meeting. Usually, the Secretary is busy taking notes for the meeting summary and signing up new members and getting ready to run the meeting if necessary.
Perhaps an appointed person to head up the work at each meeting would be appropriate. 

I'll help co0rdinate with Alan Sosbe and the Bill Priest Institute to see if we can get free band width or how much it would cost.

Who wants to volunteer to do some of the work?

Robert L. Jordan

I respond:

The interest for me is not to view archives or read summaries,
useful as those things are to do.  I'd like, as noted above,
to participate.  I believe this to be _considerable_ gain.

Five out of six DPRG long distance members surveyed agree:

Jeff Birt,
This is a major cool idea!  Then even the out of town, state or country
members could attend meetings!

Jim Brown,
I'd be interested in that too. 

Wade Smith,
WOW!  Now THAT WOULD be cool for us that has dun been relocated!

Dan Miner,
This sounds perfect! 

James Vroman,
Ditto from one who will soon be in Missouri as well

Seems like the kind of cutting-edge cyber-nifty thing a 21st century
robot club might do. :)
