Sounds good to me.  But we do need to follow "Quaid's Rule" and be sure
to keep business in IRC.

I think we need better transcription.  It's hard to summarize important
points in realtime.  It's also nice to know who's saying things.

It's also hard to have two streams of communication -- if several people
are in IRC asking questions, they're at a disadvantage in knowing what's
going on and being able to raise an issue with a specific point to
people who are discussing things on the phone.

In my case specifically, I comprehend ideas and plans better when
they're written than when they're spoken but I learn more about the
people doing the communication when it's auditory.  (I drive my wife
crazy because I never remember the lyrics of songs, only the tune and
emotional content.)
