Thanks for pointing out the VNC software. In fact, Jeff Smith referred us to it
also, a little earlier.

We believe, to adequately answer the question of "What is a good 'production' (not
'development', nor 'R&D') set of tools that can give our community members better
realtime conferencing support?", we have to have a profile the community in the
first place.

The Bootstrap Institute is actually contemplating to do a survey among our alliance
members and those interested in this work to gain a better understanding on the
platforms (and applications) people use, and to seek suggestions and
recommendations on this issue.

FYI, I work part-time at the Bootstrap Institute and is presently helping to
develop that survey. Will look forward to your support and that from the entire
community when this survey comes out.
