Given Hajime's response, should we audioconference via High Speed
Conferencing instead? It's the only one I've found so far that allows
Skype and POTS lines, allows hundreds of lines, and is free (although
toll-free). I can't vouch for the accessibility of the web interface
needed for participation), nor does it have handraising.
