Absolutely.  And then add in all the individual phone bills. Mine can run 
up to 40 US $ for a 2hr meeting.

I am all for this. It is actually easier for me to write in text at 1 or 2 
AM than talk on the phone. More people will be able to contribute, I think. 
It's nice to talk on the phone once in a while though. Another idea would 
be to begin the meeting on the phone for a short time and then move to IRC. 
We could have completed out last meeting that way.
