I agree that voice communication is much better.
Here are few issues I'd like to point out:
1) bandwidth and connection stability
- will dev with a bad connection be able to really participate in communication?
(I mean what if voice just dissapers for few or more seconds or worse
if someone has experience with teamspeak on not-very-good connections
- please share your opinions
Will be 4-8KB/s enought?
2) the level of understability of native-spoken English by
- it would be nice if native English speakers try to speak sharp and
not fast in any situations ;-)
3) how we will record the meeting? :-P
- are there built-in features in server/client or there is some workaround?
(though as a last resort IRC would be OK too )
