Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the info. I will try to connect tonight / Sat Korean time (perfect way to spend a Friday evening BTW...). We didn't have enough time to prepare much participation at our end and probably will only expect the west-coasters to join (myself, Bin, and whoever else I can con with promises of a beer sometime). But this will I think give us a good dry-run opportunity to see how this distributed virtual TTWF might work (or not and how we can fix that). We will be much better prepared for the next one then.

Hi again Bryan,

I'm still waiting for confirmation from the organisers but I'm expecting
to have a spare laptop and projector that we'll keep running on Saturday
for remote participants.

= Progress =
* I'm having a test today with the Tokyo organisers for WebRTC video
chat. If it looks OK I can send you the URL. If not, maybe Skype/Zakim
can be a fallback.
* We can use a channel on the W3C IRC chat server, say #ttwf (or is
there a channel you've previously used)?
* I'll try to get the slides from the presenters later today (Korean
time) and send them to you.

= Timing =
== Seoul [1] ==
Talks & preparation: Friday from 4:45 pm Korean time (From 12:45 am PST)
Test writing: Saturday from 10:00 am Korean time (From 6:00 pm PST)

== Tokyo [2] ==
Talks & preparation: Saturday from 10:00 am Japan time (From 6:00 pm PST)
Test writing: Saturday from 1:00 pm Japan time (From 9:00 pm PST)

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do.  Also please note
I have to leave after lunch (Korean time) on Saturday to catch my
flight, but somebody will take over from me.
