The *Open* Bibliographic Data Working Group of the *Open* Knowledge
Foundation shouldn't be using closed, divisive Skype, should it?

http://sipphone.com/conference/ might work for this group but I've not
tested how far it scales.  Use sip:1222xxxxxxx at proxy01.sipphone.com
URLs for other SIP phones and regular phones might be able to call in
on http://www.sipbroker.com/sipbroker/action/pstnNumbers with prefix
*747.  Anyone know other similar SIP services?

Hope that helps,
