Video ConferencingRemote collaboration can be fiddly stuff.
Right now I'm sitting in a client's videoconferencing suite in London staring at a huge LCD monitor showing a video feed from a similar room in Birmingham.
There's nobody there, of course. Despite all the marvels of modern communication technology, we still can't get folk to turn up meetings on time...
And I can't help noticing what looks like a bowl of sweets on the table at their end. I've just got tea cups and tea bags. No hot water. Just tea bags and tea cups.
They could have Skyped me at home. I've got chocolate biscuits and Lapsang Suchong. And - more importantly - water and a kettle!
