Remote Town Meeting
Just wondering how other town meeting members feel after the two "practice" meetings we had to learn the technology for a remote town meeting. I'm feeling fairly confident that I'll be okay, but there seemed to be a range of abilities, largely based on differences in equipment and internet connections (I was using a Windows 10 laptop with Comcast internet). And a related question: should the goal be to get through the meeting if at all possible, or to make sure that as many members can participate as possible, even if that means postponing the meeting if too many people have problems?

I thought we voted to hold the meeting on a warm beach? ?? Seriously, I thought it went pretty well and I think we’ll be fine.

If people don’t have the connectivity or technology, you can always go to Town Hall (call, first) and use one of the Chrome laptops they have.

I think I'll be fine. I was confused when he called on me to speak when I hadn't requested to. I had done the "2nd" thing so I wonder if my name was in his que because of that. I hope enough people feel confident enough to do it without postponing.
