We did receive a few feedback (not a lot, but see 
on regular conference call time preferences.    (01)

We also briefly discussed the matter during our 3.12.03 conference 
call. A recap of that and the follow-up is as follows:    (02)

1. We, as a community, will be transacting business mainly over the 
email list and the wiki, and NOT the conference calls, as 
participation (in view of the highly internationalized distributed 
membership, ... etc.) will never come close to that of the archived, 
async "meeting" that is constantly going on over the [ontolog-forum]. 
Therefore, our REAL working meetings are always in session, in 
asynchronous mode, among all members.    (03)

2. We should, however, do short weekly conference calls (say, 30 min. 
nominal, 1 hour max.) anyway, to build rapport; sync up; distribute, 
assign or arbitrate virtual ownership of tasks; and use it to deal 
with emergencies. (see 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Conference_Call_2003-03-12#nid0102)    (04)

3. Of the few feedback received, Wednesdays, seemingly, is NOT a very 
popular time (at least for those who responded.) It was suggested that 
we should just name a time, and let people juggle their schedules to 
participate, when they feel the need to.    (05)

4. May I, therefore, propose the two alternatives below:    (06)

(a) Tuesdays, Start Time: 10:30 AM Pacific Std Time
(b) Thursdays, Start Time: 10:30 AM Pacific Std Time    (07)

fyi, time (a), for other locations can be referenced at:

5. Kindly feedback by noon PST tomorrow (3/17) if you have a 
preference for (a) or (b) above.    (09)

6. Upon the feedback, I will schedule the conference call (like last 
time) and route the invitations to people who were already on my list, 
plus new respondents, indicating interest in joining the calls. I will 
also post the time/access details to the forum for everyone else.    (010)
