I'm not looking at giving credit, although that is a good idea.  What 
I'm trying to do is best define the meeting.  I think that having the 
location as part of the meeting name, is useful.  Just as when I tell 
people I live in Acworth, that's more accurate then if I tell them I 
live in Georgia.

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
to FM, why doesn't that apply to the Internet (anymore...)?
