Dear Fred, Stuart, and the rest,

Our group is in the process of coming up with  a new plan of how and 
when we hold our meetings, etc.  It ocurred to me that we could have 
alot of very good discussion on the Internet just like we do here on 
Coho-L.  Those cyber-meetings would supplement, but not replace, our 
face to face meetings.  Some of the opportunities I see are:  no need to 
set a schedule or find a place; no need to arrange childcare; people who 
don¹t contribute well in large group discussions may find a written 
discussion more appealing; and when we do get together for a face to 
face meeting, we¹ll already have done a significant amount of processing 
of the issues.

Many in our group are already cyber-capable and others seem willing to 
find a way to get access.

Have any other groups played with this idea of cyber-meetings?  Any 
reaction, good or bad?

I'm not much of a computer whiz (understatement) so I don't know quite 
how this kind of thing would best be structured to allow us to have our 
discussion, keep it cheap, and make it easily accessible.  Any
