I will not be at Midwinter - I'd like to attend our meeting via Skype or some such - can we set this up?

Question about our meeting space -- I know the Sheraton charges extra for wifi in hotel rooms, but has ALA paid to have wifi in the ballroom? I have a webpage I would like to show you but would need wifi. Otherwise, I can make printouts/screen shots.janet
Actually, will miss Midwinter altogether. My flight out this morning was cancelled because of ice (and lots of it). Because of the weather and the number of flight cancellations about these parts, the soonest I could get rebooked on a flight into Dallas on ANY carrier out of Seattle was Saturday. Not worth the effort at that point. Sorry to miss a second in-person meeting.
Mel and Susan, you will both be missed!
As far as Virtual participation and the question about wifi... I am staying in the Sheraton, so if nothing else, my complimentary wifi should work. However, I already noticed, it is pretty slow. This will probably be OK to show Janet's web pages, but we have to see on-the-fly if the bandwidth will allow us to do an iChat or FaceTime.
In either case, I will bring my MAC and fire up both pieces of software at the time of the meeting. The "person" you will want to connect with on either FaceTime or iChat is firstname.lastname@example.org
OK, looking forward to seeing everyone else tomorrow morning!
Since our wifi at the meeting was so spotty, I did not want to use bandwidth to show my libraries' new Scholarly Communications web page. Nonetheless, I would like some input on it b/c I am too close to be able to assess it impartially.
Here is the URl http://www.libraries.psu.edu/psul/scholar.html
It was re-desigend with large graphics to be eye catching but I still think some of the labels (ie names we have given to certain services) are confusing. I am also not sure the RSS feed adds any value.
I welcome all comments.
