Hello Ada, All:

Thank you for your response.

The times noted in my message are still correct. I am still listing
Thursday at 11 as unconfirmed because I haven't confirmed that Alice
Boxhaul and/or James Craig will be available, and we need them for a
meaningful AOM conversation. I'll advise when that becomes confirmed.

Please also note that our conversation with the TAG Friday at 11 has two
unrelated topics, one of which is XR. It's probably a bit much for just
an hour's conversation, but I think we can make it work.

We're very much looking forward to meeting with you and others from
Immersive Web.
