dear all

to stay on this point, it still doesn't feel right to me to invite 
google. see the 'someone' from google point on the etherpad 
9http://okcon.okfnpad.org/2011-programme?). but, like puneet, i also 
don't know if i can bring up the energy to discuss this.

though, maybe it might very well be worth to add 'okcon philosophy' as 
an agenda point? & also the question if google should be invited?

btw. puneet, if you have skype-out you can simply call the number, 
currently from the uk it costs less than a pound per hour...

all the best,

I don't intend to start a philosophical discussion here, but Skype would have been the easiest for me. As is, the conf. calling is a bit too complicated for my tastes. I will be happy to contribute via the Etherpad, but I will not be able to call in using either a pay or a free (SIP) service.
