When I think about using a PC for a virtual meeting, the first thing that comes to mind is hooking up a desktop video camera so participants can see each other. But video, according to CoWorking.com founder Bernard DeKoven, actually can make it harder to conduct a good virtual meeting. "Videoconferencing is minimally effective if all we're going to do is look at each other's faces," he said. It "was supposed to add personality and subtle meaning to meetings, but that rarely happens."

On Jan. 11, the City Council of Rolling Hills Estates adopted a resolution finalizing an agreement to transfer 20 acres of Chandler Trust property to the Palos Verdes Land Conservancy. I support the concept of retaining undeveloped open space, but I deplore the method used by our City Council to accomplish these transfers. During the busy holiday season, without a single public hearing, $1.4 million of our county money and 28 acres of land changed hands. It all happened that way because our City Council held closed-session meetings, for which no minutes are ever kept, allegedly to meet Chandler's deadline.
