    I would like to see an option to use headphones with microphone. For me, a drawback with chat is that it’s hard to follow one person communicating with another person about a previous comment while others are making new comments. Also, someone might have an inablility to type fast enough to keep up with the thread. This might entail the need for a moderator to keep things flowing more smoothly.

    It’s hard to know how this would develop, or how it would work. I doubt I could attend often (depending on scheduling, of course), but first of all it might be useful to put out some ideas for what could be accomplished by a video chat sangha. There’s already a forum for discussion, which has the virtue that people can chip in their two cents when convenient, and read through past commentary.

    I think of one (the?) main benefit of a sangha as being able to meditate in a group. That wouldn’t be possible through video chat.
