Crap, here comes the boss!

Two of my friends are working on different telepresense technologies. How scary/cool do you think they are?! The time is totally ripe for these things. Years ago, I had a gig at Picturetel. Their video conference solution cost $20k and didn’t work 1/2 as well as Skype video conference does today (BTW, if you want to use reliable video conference software between you and your family, I definitely recommend Skype video. It’s really easy to use and free.)

    I’m not sure abot that ‘drive through the factory’ deal. Seriously – I have to deal with issues on our production floor once in a while, and I can’t imagine being able to sniff out problems with a video cam.

    You gotta get out there and, you know talk to people. Sometimes it’s more the way the place feels than anything else.

    Wow! How cool is that! Then again, I haven’t had a job where it was a bad thing if the boss walked up at any moment for a long time. I tend to have good relationships with my bosses. It helps that I haven’t had a nimrod for a boss in over 10 years. If your boss tends to be a dipstick often, that this could be bad.
