A bunch of us are on the C++ Committee, which meets twice a year.
Boost people might get together one evening during these meetings.
Current schedule looks like:

  * 20-26 October, 1999, Kona, HI, United States.
  * April, 2000, Tokyo, Japan.
  * October, 2000, probably Toronto, Canada.
  * April, 2001, tentatively Denmark.

Other than , Reid Sweatman's suggestion that other industry meetings
might bring some of us together is also worth thinking about.

Conincidentally, the message below came the other day. Maybe a
couple of Boost list members could volunteer to give this a try, and
report back to the rest of us. Is it useful? How fast a connection
is required?


eGroups Talk is here!

Strap on your headset and get ready, because eGroups Talk is
up and running! Now you can enjoy real-time voice
conversation, either with members of your private eGroup, or
in public eGroup talk rooms where any registered user can
stop in for a conversation.

Best of all, it's FREE - kiss long-distance and
international telephone charges goodbye!

To get started you'll need a Windows 95, 98 or NT computer
with a microphone, speakers and a suitable sound card. Once
you're set up, just visit your favorite eGroup and click the
'Talk' tab.

Learn all about this new feature on the eGroups Help pages:
