      are "assemble" and "place"

      I would submit that as time passes the idea of virtual assembly will become more and more accepted.  And on line "places"?  We have lots of those, don't we?

      But I would also expect that the top most layers would in fact meet "in meat space" as navajo so elegantly puts it.  Maybe not for as long as they do now.  It is only required that they meet once a year!

      In any event, it is long past time for band aid approaches.
