Where we've ended up so far is that we'll probably have something of a 
working session to plan out MUC2 in greater detail. Not sure yet about 
other topics. That kind of working session doesn't lend itself well to 
remote participation (e.g. standing at the whiteboard sketching things) 
and I don't think we'll have planned presentations (although send them 
along if so - folks can view locally instead of sharing in real time).

We'll definitely work to make sure we have decent mics and cameras and 
such in the room - but I don't want to over promise (I have to say that 
as a remote attendee of IETF/W3C/XSF/etc. events I have *never* had a 
great experience).
