Not necessarily. There are likely to be folks who have firewalls that inspect what goes on port 80 and, seeing non-HTTP gibberish, will block the connection.
For a future meeting, we have the option of going to a dial-in number, but that will be quite expensive for people outside the US, as well as for many people inside the US. We do not know how to make the tradeoff between that and the port-blocked issue.
Please feel free to continue this thread with discussion of how onerous it would be to make an occasional two-hour call to a local number in the US.
