I am not saying every meeting needs to be video or voice; but it would be
good to have some variety once in a while.

There are a lot of minor details communicated in verbal and visual
communication that do not translate well to text.

I have considered it, but there are two obstacles:

First, my current employer requires me to obtain permission from them to be
on the board of a non-profit.  This is not insurmountable, but likely
requires proving (amongst other things) that I can completely isolate Sugar
from anything my employer pays me to do for all hours that my employer pays
me to work.

Second, I would like to see some more public signs of organic growth
besides the Google events before I commit more than a few hours per week.
My available time outside of work is limited, and I have no intention of
providing free labor for someone's unknown "customer."
