There's a certain point, to be a cynical coder, where people just show up at meetings for face-time: to show that their involved. I'm not saying that these people don't have valuable work that could be done. Instead, their perceptions is that showing up at a meeting is the prime channel to prove that they're doing that valuable work and to do that work.
The perception is there for a reason. Face to face time, whether in meetings or the hallway or lunch, builds trust among humans. Lack of face time breaks down trust. Employ workarounds for this truth at your peril.
There's certainly truth to that. After awhile of orginization life I'd bozo-bitted meetings in general, but each time I had a meal or drinks with someone, even if they had been bozo-bitted, I liked them a bit more.
