[open-linguistics] telco times

Dear all,

there was the complaint at the last telco that the Doodle had too many  
options. I totally agree, but these were necessary in order to allow  
people from outside Europe (where the majority of people involved  
currently resides) to figure out a suitable time for them. Luckily, both  
Jonathan Pool from California and Andrea Schalley from Australia could  
make it last time, and I'd like to thank them both for doing so despite  
the somewhat uncomfortable time slot. Now, the suggestion is that we try  
to address the problem globally and identify the time slots that would be  
acceptable to both European and the current non-European members.

So, what are your ideas?
I think whatever time we choose, it should be within the margins of  
European academic working hours, i.e., between 07:00am and 10:00pm CET.
We might actually think about alternating time slots, an early one (more  
acceptable to people from Asia and Australia) and a late one (more  
acceptable to people from America).

If we can agree on a time slot that is more or less acceptable for most  
people, I would do a Doodle for the next telco that should happen around  
the 1st of May.
