Similarly, by noise I wasn't actually refering to "Managing the distributed

incarnation of technology for transparently distributed meetings. I find 
myself just too distracted by these visible shortfalls in the technology.

This isn't a shortfall in the technology, it's a shortfall in YOUR net 
connection bandwidth or your service provider's bandwidth. Once the 
infrastructure gets updated with enough bandwidth, this kind of problem 
should miraculously disappear

Hum,  Thats a DS3 (Sprint) from HWB to an FDDI (NAP) to a DS3 (MCI) to WBN.
Sure sounds like a bandwidth problem...
There are others that will claim that the actual problem is one of resource
reservation and that the existing bandwidth ought to be able to handle the
level of use.
