Professor Hillary Grainger is the current chair of the Cremation Society's Council. Recently I stumbled across an interview with her, the byline of which caught my eye; "The architectural historian on the mediocrity of postwar crematoria design and why we need to talk more openly about death".

Web conferencing may be used as an umbrella term for various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings. It may also be used in a more narrow sense to refer only to the peer-level web meeting context, in an attempt to disambiguate it from the other types of collaborative sessions. Terminology related to these technologies is inexact, and no generally agreed upon source or standards organization exists to provide an established usage reference.
