Perhaps it's reasonable to consider a shift, and perhaps even a rotation between time-zones to allow access to more folks. As a concrete suggestion to start a conversation: I'd generally prefer 11:00 Pacific, 20:00 CET (as my kids will safely be in bed). How unworkable would that be for folks who care about the calls?

11:00 am Pacific works for me.

> 2.  Audio-only conference calls are somewhat awkward. It might be nice to try out something that includes video/screen-sharing for somewhat more lively conversations (while, of course, retaining audio-only options for folks that would prefer for us not to have a camera in their house!). I suspect that there's a diversity of preferences in this group: Vidyo, Skype, etc. Hangouts are simplest for me personally, but I'm willing to try just about anything that works on a Chromebook: the TAG is apparently having success with https://appear.in/ <https://appear.in/>, for instance?

I’m willing to try appear.in.

For those who care, the https://appear.in/ <https://appear.in/> page loads third-party JavaScript from Google Ads Services, Google Tag Manager, DoubleClick, Stripe, and Google Analytics. In addition to this, it makes CORS requests to Amplitude and loads a tracking pixel from google.com <http://google.com/>.

> 3.  Scribing in IRC is a pain in the butt. While it's nice to be able to rely upon the W3C's tooling for autopublication of minutes after a meeting, other groups have been successful with more dynamic methods. The TAG, for instance, has been using Cryptpad to take collaborative notes during a meeting (https://cryptpad.w3ctag.org/code/#/2/code/view/PgABV3fUQYNx4vTY8-dCiaaBGUqfwu+jwduYlO6Lzao/ <https://cryptpad.w3ctag.org/code/#/2/code/view/PgABV3fUQYNx4vTY8-dCiaaBGUqfwu+jwduYlO6Lzao/>), and then posting the final result to GitHub (https://github.com/w3ctag/meetings/blob/gh-pages/2019/02-tokyo/02-07-minutes.md <https://github.com/w3ctag/meetings/blob/gh-pages/2019/02-tokyo/02-07-minutes.md>). That's a model that makes sense to me. Perhaps we could try it out?

https://cryptpad.w3ctag.org <https://cryptpad.w3ctag.org/> appears to be a single trust page. Yay!
