taking minutes for irc is easier than taking minutes for teleconf
it is possible to see who is speaking and can get things spelt out more easily
it is possible to take time in documenting after the meeting and and
listen/read and participate during the meeting.
it is also possible to keep the log itself in situations where the
minutes person is not there.

teleconfs are better for being able to hear how people feel
you get more of a personal impact
they were good for having lug folk participate because it is the
dialogue itself which was handy
for pragmatic getting stuff done i feel irc is more effective.
meeting scale/numbers of participants is a factor for both
