Perils of Videoconferencing

Everyone is so busy these days, but there always seems to be a increasing need to have meetings. I've made the point before that I'm not a great fan of these. Maybe technology can come to our aid? With the increasing availability of broadband links and the falling price of webcams, some folk think that videoconferencing is the answer: allowing us all to sit on our backsides even more, but still take part in these invaluable hot-air-generating sessions.

This video makes the point that videoconferencing should be used with care. One point to remember is that just because you can't see your colleagues it doesn't necessarily follow that they can't see you!
