“The more, the merrier in meetings. You can now have up to 250 participants! … Just right for that quarterly all-hands get-together.”
The announcement from a leading video conference system supplier made my heart sink.
NO! That's NOT just right.
Thanks to the magic of videoconferencing, you can instantly talk at all your people, all over the world - and of course that's useful in some circumstances.
But it’s not a get-together. It's not bringing anyone together.
