An adorably named new service, PoketyPoke, could spare you the embarrassment of always being the last person to join a conference call. Once you sign up for the service, which launched in private beta yesterday, you can forward any free-form e-mail invitation or calendar invitation to firstname.lastname@example.org. The service then calls you at the number of your choosing at the time of the scheduled conference call and patches you in directly, handling all the annoying pin numbers and meeting IDs for you. Based on some of the comments about the service on TechCrunch, it seems to be a bit buggy, but hopefully any glitches will be resolved soon.
