I don't think this meeting can be done for reasons previously stated.
But I do think we should at least videotape the meetings in future,
providing that we have the speaker's permission.  If we record it
using a digital camcorder the video stream can be uploaded to a Web
server to be streamed after the fact.  I don't see why it should need
to be a live multicast.
