Your mileage may vary, but I can't remember a meeting where more than half 
the people consistently announced themselves at the mike - I used to stop 
people and ask (as chair) but decided that was just being obnoxious.

What would be helpful would be putting this information in Jabber when a tag 
is swiped - that's about half of what many jabber scribes do, and it's 
pretty close to being automated. Nice.

I should also mention that it's nice (as note-taker) to not have to crank my 
head around looking for faces when I don't recognize voices - I can keep my 
eyes forward where my laptop is.
