I agree completely.
I would suggest, to begin with, establishing a communication infrastructure. This way, we would know exactly who is interested, who is participating and be able to establish
the actual team.
With this in mind, I would also suggest attempting a really really simple game (an original 3-6 week project perhaps) to get a feel for what we're attempting and iron out some of the creases. A small insignificant project that could introduce all of us to common languages and conventions (For example, my ability in C++ is not even close to my Java, and I have never used Torque before).
