[foaf-protocols] WebID Telecon Agenda - August 10th 2010, 1600 UTC

Hi all,

The second WebID telecon will be held this coming Tuesday, August 10th
2010 at 1600 UTC. It is open to the public, so all are welcome to join
or listen in. All audio for the meeting will be recorded so that those
that cannot make the call will still be able to listen to the meeting at
their leisure.

NOTE: If you are going to join PLEASE use SIP (Voice over IP) to
connect. Only use the dial-in number if you cannot connect via SIP. The
US dial-in number costs us a minimum of 1.6 cents per minute and can go
up as much as 50 cents per minute. In the worst case, if there are 10
callers on the phone, that's $5 USD per minute, meaning a 60 minute
telecon would cost us close to $300. SIP is free for both ends - use SIP
(there are directions on connecting via SIP at the bottom of this e-mail).

Connecting via SIP

SIP stands for Session Initiation Protocol and is basically a way to
make free voice calls over the Internet (VoIP). It's like Skype, with
the main difference being that it is an open standard. To begin, get a
SIP client:

Blink (Mac OS X):

Ekiga (Windows):

Ekiga (Linux):

You must make sure that you are not connected to any SIP providers to
make the call. Ekiga will set you up with a SIP provider if you let it,
just skip past this registration step if you can. To make sure you are
not connected to any SIP providers in Ekiga, click Edit->Accounts. There
should be no accounts listed. If there are accounts, the checkboxes for
all accounts should be blank.

To test to see if you can connect to the WebID SIP-based telecon, call
this SIP address:

webid at voip.digitalbazaar.com

You should hear somebody say "Welcome to the WebID Working Group. This
is a public working group...".

You may test connecting to the telecon via SIP at any point between now
and the call on Tuesday.
