I don't wish to be overly critical, but the agenda put out before
today's conference call had a couple of clarity issues.

The datetime is listed as "2009-05-20T14:00-160-". Assuming that last
dash is supposed to be a 0, and assuming that UTC is the intended
timezone, that's a two hour meeting starting at 2 pm UTC. In fact, we
had a one hour meeting starting at 1 pm UTC. I was lucky in that I
checked in #swxg ahead of time, and in fact a good number of people seem
to have turned up at the intended time, but it looks like Hao Wang
doesn't possess our mind-reading skills, and there may well have been
more people who missed out on this.

Permatime.com is a pretty good way of removing any doubt about a
datetime. e.g.

http://permatime.com/UTC/2009-05-27/13:00/Next_teleconference

Alternatively, Ian Davis provides nice RDF-enabled datetime URIs:

http://placetime.com/interval/gregorian/2009-05-27T13:00:00Z/PT1H

The other issue, more minor, is that the IRC channel was listed as #sxwg
instead of #swxg - this was also on the 2009-05-13 agenda.
