[WEG] I don't know about anyone else here, but you do *not* want me to attempt to facilitate a discussion using freehand drawings and writing. My handwriting and drawing skill was bad before I discovered a keyboard, and years of atrophy have made its usefulness approach zero as a meaningful method of communication. You'd be better off with the aforementioned stone tablets and cuneiform in terms of understanding.

And I echo what Dave said - quit blaming the tools and assuming that forcing people to use tools they're not used to using will fix this. You have a very specific opinion of what an effective WG session should be like and what people should and should not be doing to facilitate such. Sounds like you need to work with the EDU team to give a Sunday afternoon training session entitled "how not to turn a WG session into a broadcast-only medium" possibly with a section for WG chairs and a section for potential speakers.
