  It *would* be great to get hooked up to the conference somehow.  In fact,
we've been looking into this.  One big obstacle is the nine-hour time
differential - we're thinking that playing a recording of the keynote may
be the best we can do.  It's all still just speculation at this stage.

I would like to see an MBONE broadcast of some of the proceedings
since many (most?) people from the North America region won't be
able to attend.  Maybe a SIGWEB meeting could be scheduled for the 
same date and avirtual teleconference panel discussion could happen.

Are others interested in a telepresence?
