===== GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS - IRC, VOIP - 11 AM IRC Start time
== !! 11AM !! SETUP TIME - should be online starting this hour
NOTE: ONLINE MEETINGS STARTS AT 11 AM, NOT 10 AM
This gives the local group 1 hour to do local setup.
IRC CHANNEL - BerkeleyTIPGlobal on Freenode.net
== VOIP -
1) Dimdim.com ? - VOIP conference in Firefox + Adobe Flash
2) or try Ekiga? or Asterisk?
This meeting will be our first attempt to get VOIP going.
VOIP capability is the group Programming/Development/Progress Project
for this meeting. We will be working together to get this capability
working for the global meeting.
===== PROGRAMMING PARTY
Work on getting VOIP working between meeting locations,
including individual participants from home.
We'll be trying & testing:
1) Dimdim.com - One to Many (1-N) net meeting service using
Firefox & Adobe Flash
2) Asterisk - Red Hat Infrastructure team has new VOIP capability,
I think using Asterisk & donated hosting from Digium???
We'll investigate this technology.
3) Ekiga - Can this be used for 1-N? N-N? How? Server needed? What SW?
===== JOIN FROM HOME - NEW ; OR, SETUP A LOCAL MEETING
NEW this meeting, we INVITE everyone to JOIN FROM HOME if you wish.
This is an easy way to get started with the meeting.

community & fun. You could have a local potluck meal, too.
