I agree with the points made by Adrian Chad and Naomi Most. I don't
understand what's the point of using services out there, when we can
host, and work on projects that are proven to work for what we want to

Why do people insist on using alternatives to FLOSS projects?
Noisebridge doesn't care about the practicality of said services. It's a
shame that people want to make use of such services for a Hackerspace.

With that said, the consesus was only for the streaming of the audio of
the meetings not on a collaborative audio conference. If you want to
participate on the meeting, go to the meeting.

Can we stop the discussion and start working on these? the ones that
actually want to work on these.

Thanks to everybody for all your suggestions.
