If real meetings worked the way video conferences do


Bug-toothpick not included


Those of you who’ve ever participated in a virtual meeting via conference call will appreciate this:




On-line meetings already offer a great many positives, but, someday, we or our successors will recall the state of today’s technology with amusement, rather the way we look at those who drove early motor cars.  We see them in their long coats, putting their goggles on after cranking up their engines, breaking down every ten miles, seldom managing to rattle along on their primitive roads for more than an hour before needing to change tires.  That’s how our conference calls will appear.
