Hi all - may have already mentioned it, if so please ignore...

http://webhuddle.sourceforge.net does some amazing stuff
- handles VoIP
- Interactive collaborative whiteboard
- Application sharing
- Chat
- all in a java applet :)

the voip is a bit slow, fine once you're used to it though, and anyhow,
it's a great open source tool. Here's a recent demo


if anyone would like to record some meetings you're welcome to use my
server to host meetings, let me know and I'll send you the URL.

"I have often thought that nothing would do more extensive good at small
expense than the establishment of a small circulating library in every
county, to consist of a few well-chosen books, to be lent to the people of
the country." --Thomas Jefferson to John Wyche, 1809.
