Should Churches Not Meet in Person?

CNN has a story running about Internet Worship services and consuming/experiencing/participating in teaching and worship through web sites.

What do you think?  Do you think we should have chart in the chat room?  Church by twitter?  Church in Second Life?

Personally, I think the church should utilize technology heavily in its ministry.  Podcasts, vodcasts, member sites, databases, video, etc to facilitate its communication and ministry.  However, it seems to me that the "church" or the "ekklesia" is a gathered people.  Disembodying church seems to be a horrible idea as God has made us embodied creatures in community.
