I used to spent a fair fraction of my time in meetings; it is one of the lasting joys of a shift to more independent working that this is no longer the case. Chip Morningstar is still very much in that world, though:
I am convinced that the fundamental ontological construct of the universe is The Meeting. The Meeting is one. There is only one Meeting. The Meeting is all.
Chip's panegyric on The Meeting continues for some time in this vein. Personally, I'd have started to worry when I found myself capitalizing the term.
