When we had the first international internet streaming video debate 
(Vermont vs. UK All Stars at the English Speaking Union in London -- 
Sponsored by Apple, PeoplesForum, Accenture, and more) ) there were some 
old-timers there who had been in the very first voice-only distance 
debate using the trans-Atlantic cable in the 1940's.

Their reaction to the debate held between Vermont & the UK was:

"Well, the Americans still talk really, really fast."
