I came down with a cold and an ear infection (as I learned when I visited the doctor on Monday) over the weekend, and so: no travel to San Francisco for me this week.
These days we have all the technologies for collaborating remotely – e-mail and text messaging of course, conference calls, remote screen sharing, and so on. What is still rare to this day, in my experience, is using video conferencing. Our on-line meetings are mostly a telephone conference only, and then we use the WebEx meeting software to look at a presenter’s computer screen. And if needed, someone else can be made presenter, and share his or her screen, and so on.
