So far, I've met Bertrand and Jörg. No surprise as they live within about
120km of my place. :-) It's really interesting what difference it makes
to have someone directly in front of you. Too bad, Skype still doesn't
have video conferencing support. Anyone already using a video conference
application? Hardware and bandwidth available here. That would be a good
work-around until we have cheap hypersonic travel. Still hoping for
"beaming" to become available....
