As a few of you may already know, WPI has just recently installed an Access
Grid Node.  For those of you who have never heard of the Access Grid project,
it's a completely immersive video conferencing system - like traditional
videoconferencing, but arranged such that the technology portion becomes
invisible, and you can converse with others as if they were in the same room.
More details at http://www.accessgrid.org/

My idea was that if we could find a couple of remote sites with people who
might be interested in joining us, we could have a meeting over the Access
Grid.

A list of other Access Grid sites is up at
http://www-fp.mcs.anl.gov/fl/accessgrid/nodes.htm and includes BU at least.
If anyone knows anyone else at any of these sites who would be interested, we
can start seeing about scheduling the time needed in all of the spaces.
