7am is not something that i can do almost all of the time.
I similarly understand that midnight is not something that people in 
japan or austrailia can do almost all of the time.
The only meeting that i attended so far for this group was the f2f in 
cannes and the meeting time for me on the west coast was
from midnight until 3:30 am. 
this would definitely be a hardship on any kind of regular basis and 
would be something i could not keep up.

I would strongly prefer one time for the telecons if it was not 
something that I could not make most of the time.

I see from the notes of the meeting in cannes that the group preferred 
to have one time   but i doubt if the question was posed if people 
preferred having one time if it meant needing to modify their sleep 
schedules and entire family schedules every week.
if so, i think they would have voted differently.

I think we need to take input from people who are participating but 
might not have been included in the discussion of telecon time.
Given participation from Japan, US, and Europe,  i think we have no 
choice but to have alternating times.
It is simply unfair to have the telecon routinely at a time that is not 
possible or puts too much of a hardship on people living in any 
particular time zone.

I would like to have the next telecon at another time that does not 
preclude my involvement most of the time.
I am willing to collect constraints/suggestions.

I am also still willing to cochair the task force i signed up for.
