This time slot (6:00pm Boston) works better for me, too.

Dick, Philip, Sean,

If I pay for the stay-awake coffees, can we move this an hour later?

 Amsterdam/Oslo: Midnight Mon-Tue
 Boston: Mon 6:00 PM
 Cupertino/Mountain View: Mon 3:00 PM
 Tokyo: Tue 7:00 AM
 Sydney: Tue 8:00 AM

(Or should we consider moving 24 hours forward to Tuesday San Francisco time?)

I cannot make that exact time - 7am is when I get my son ready for
school and on the school bus. I won't be back before 7:45am. So, an
hour later would be much appreciated for me.

 As it happen I have a meeting from 2:00-2:45 on the 26th so starting an hour later would be better for me as well.

Hello All,

The Accessibility Task Force chairs have requested that we convene a
teleconference so that we might have an opportunity to have some real-time
dialog, as well as afford an opportunity for those who might not have been
following our sub-threads as closely to ask questions or points of

As the principles in this sub-group are quite literally spread around the
globe, there is not 'great' time to schedule this call, however I would
like to propose Monday, April 26, 2010 at 2:00 PM Pacific Time, which
means our European friends must stay up late, and our friends down under
must rise with the roosters:

 London: Mon 10:00 PM
 Amsterdam/Oslo: Mon 11:00 PM
 Boston: Mon 5:00 PM
 Cupertino/Mountain View: Mon 2:00 PM
 Tokyo: Tue 6:00 AM
 Sydney: Tue 7:00 AM

Other interested parties can review their local time here:

While it is hoped that we can be done in 1 hour, perhaps we should
contemplate a proposed 90 minute call - if we finish earlier then great!

A proposed agenda will be posted soon, but will likely focus on the 3
major issues we have ongoing: the Javascript API proposal, the MediaText
Associations proposal, and the time-stamp format discussion. As the HTML
WG chairs are now pushing harder for fixed delivery dates of open issues,
one anticipated outcome of the call will be to convey back to the Task
Force chairs some concrete ideas here.

Other questions/suggestions in anticipation to the teleconference welcomed
- please forward to myself or the list.
