I tried Skype conferencing today for the first time.
It happened spontaneously. I was skyping Tony Goodson when another call came from Bruce Lewin so I just turned it into a conference. And hey presto, Tony and Bruce are speaking to each other for the first time. Bruce is in Bow, I’m in Islington, Tony’s in Melbourne. And the conversation has the quality of a water cooler meeting. This is one of the ways I think Skype is powerful, it can set up spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment chats in a way that’s different from a phone call.
