Johhny,
you could look at page62 of sept PCWORLDNZ or oct of Netguide for idea of web cams.Basically eveyone that wanted to be in would need one each for $100 to $400 odd depending on what they wanted but they don't have to have the same cameras. The picture is small and jerky and poor quality. A broadband connection might help a bit but would be impractical for everyone. Then you need the software (no extra cost),Netmeeting and a server to meet on. Only not sure how many people can use it at once.
