Additional reasons:

* the infinoted server is local to our network, so if there is an
  upstream outage, we can still communicate locally
* infinoted is packaged in debian and as a result is relatively simple
  to setup and maintain
* etherpad is *not* trivial to setup, I've done it but it was a pain in
  the afro and the development is quite "balkanized" right now, so its
  not clear which was to go with it
