Seems like the best choice, given the constraints.

going to be in Poland ;-)

I think there are things that should be discussed by everyone, however. 
Maybe some of us can attend online, or maybe a separate Skype conference 
or IRC chat?

Perhaps some of the people who can't attend could upload videos?

(I wish I could disagree, but I can't ;-)
