I'm responding to this topic in a very generalized way, so I'm totally top
posting and not citing anything - it's not strictly about meetings or
process but this seems as good a conversation in which to bring it up as
any...

Speaking as a standards participant who is unpaid/not financially backed
for my participation, remote is pretty much the only way I can roll 99% of
the time.  Additionally, I have some personal issues which tend to keep me
here.  Still, I like to think that I have something to contribute
occasionally and I like to (try to) keep up.  Seems weird and limiting that
the W3C can't use free services to least stream things later and that there
is little use of things like eitherpad or googledocs.  There are cases
(f2fs/TPAC) where it feels like 1 way video stream/screencast and
occasionally even some shared pad would go a really long way to
allowing/encouraging/widening participation for folks like me - and - I
would imagine others.
