We have a Web Payments telecon coming up on this Friday. For those on 
the OpenTransact list, these are public telecons, anyone can attend, 
everyone who would like to provide constructive input is welcome.

There has been a very in-depth technical analysis performed on the 
differences between OpenTransact and PaySwarm[1,2,3,4,5]. We should 
discuss some of the highlights of this analysis on the call and then 
plot out a path going forward. I don't expect it will be an easy 
discussion, but it is a discussion that we must have as a group.

The dial-in information as well as minutes and audio logs of previous 
meetings can be found here:
