RE: In-Person and Remote Participation for 13 March Publishing Business Group Kick-off Meeting

I have been trying to connect to the WebEx but it has not started. Is this the case or do I have the wrong link? The link I have says it starts 2:30 GMT.

Hi all,

I will be present in person, but apologies already for arriving late.
Delays on train line due to signalling trouble got my train delayed for more than an hour, which runs largely over the buffer of time I had prepared for my journey.
Just arriving at Paddington now.

WebEx says 10:00-14:30, i.e., for the whole duration of the meeting.

That being said, there seems to be a mistake on the WebEx page indeed; as Daniel says, we enter into two messy weeks when the usual habits of handling timezones fail because the US considers itself to be in summer already, whereas the Europeans are more pessimistic, and consider that we are not yet there (looking through the window I must admit that, this time, the US may be right:-). At the moment, WebEx says, for the starting time "10:30am  GMT+1” which will be correct for London in two weeks but is not yet the case, it should say “10:30GMT”.

But there is no real problem. The WebEx conference calls can be started earlier manually by the “hosts”. I will make it sure that we start the meeting on time.

Ok 10:30 GMT but in the webex website you published it says 2:30 PM

Next week is one of the "bad" weeks of the year. The US move this
week-end to DST but Europe will only move two weeks from now. So between
the time in London and what is probably the MIT time in Webex...
