Why don’t we do this kind of thing more often?
I took part in a 3 hour videocon with colleagues in Lahore and Islamabad today. It went ahead without a glitch without each one of us having to leave our own cities. We had an interactive discussion, took notes, had lunch, coffee. And all this without spending money on airfares or hotel accommodation or wasting time at airports.
Why is it that we do not do more of this? Why don’t we use existing technologies to save ourselves time and money and the hassle of leaving our families and our home base? Why do we insist on catching flights at unearthly hours, tire ourselves out just so we can have a discourse with someone in another city?
Okay so today’s setup was extremely sophisticated (thanks to Ovex Technologies) but even if we didn’t have all this, we could have used Skype just as effectively to have our meeting, couldn’t we? So why do we refrain from doing it? Aren’t we interested in cost-reducing, time-saving measures?
