I'm not suggesting we need anything at the full WebEx
audio/video/presentation/chat level. And apparently the Foundation has
money to spend on dev summits. As I suggested in a previous message,
this would be a good long-term investment that would benefit a lot of
people, especially in comparison to the money set aside for travel
grants which is now going begging.



    I am only one, but I am one.  I cannot do everything, but I can do
    something.  And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what
    I can do.
