[omaha] Meeting tonight

Mon Sep 20 18:29:29 CEST 2010
Most of the online meetings I have attended (never hosted any myself,
although I have done a lot of remote desktop work) were thru webex, which is
a pay service, but very nice.
I am not familiar with any of the services on the link you provided.
I took a look around and came up with a few free services for 10 to 20
http://code.google.com/p/bigbluebutton/ this looks like an app you host
a blog post with some suggestions.
https://www.yugma.com/ this free version allows 20 participants
I am not familiar with any of these, but I have some time today if you want
to test something out before meeting time.
