Sure - there are other trade-offs, no doubt. But I think
every time this topic has come up, the discussion is dominated
by people that do attend meetings, and I'd be interested in
what might come out if we tried that discussion just amongst
non-attending active participants.
If enough of 'em wanted such a list I'd be happy to get it
created. (Off list mail is fine if you just want to say you'd

The problem is that many of the things that make a meeting better for remote
people, make it worse for local people. You can see that even in IETF meetings
today - the virtual interim meetings were everyone is remote is a much better
experience for remote people than meetings where lots of people are local in
one room and some of the people are remote.
To make any serious progress on this, I suspect we will have to discuss the
trade offs of how a WG best makes progress vs fairness to people that
don't/can't come. Note that depending on if you think I should have used don't
or can't come in the previous sentences already highly biases the question.

Here's a suggestion - create a list for people who are active
IETF participants but who miss a lot of meetings. (And ask people
who don't match that profile, like me, to stay out of the
discussion - we can read the archive if we're curious.) Let folks
on that list see if they can figure out things to do that they
think would make things better then bring that back here.
I'm not claiming this'd "fix" the problem, but I'd be interested
in the output and it'd avoid most of the discussion about
remote attendee things being discussed by the usual suspects
who do in fact go to most meetings afaics.
