Welcome to The Year 2002

My very own time machineOK, it’s been a while since I last posted here. It’s been a long while. I’d like to report that I’ve been busy doing something amazing but that would be stretching the truth just a wee bit too much. Instead, I’m here to report that I’ve made a discovery that most probably made around 2002 or so.

Today, I finally broke down and tried video conferencing to do some meetings. There were two of us in the Joplin, MO office and up to five people in our King of Prussia office. We were doing a team formation meeting and a backlog selection/planning meeting. It’s amazing how much of a difference the video makes over just using the phone. And this was using web cams, Skype, and normal phones, none of that fancy stuff Cisco and others are peddling these days.

At the rate I’m going, I fully expect to be up to the year 2008 in about 6 or 7 years from now, which means I’ll be actively networking with Facebook, watching HDTV, navigating with GPS devices, browsing the web on my mobile, and driving a hybrid.
