I got an email a few days ago touting a new video conferencing tool, ooVoo, which is still in Beta. So I read some reviews and decided it’s something I’ll put on my to-do list to try out in the near future.
Although I am in constant contact with the office I work with via IM and phone, I am not required to participate in video-conferencing. At least not for the time being… which is actually a good thing since most of the time I’m in sweats and not looking very professional. If video-conferencing ever does become a requirement for me, I’ll have to throw on a blazer and stick up an office screen prop behind me (just like in some of those telecommuter videos I wrote about over the weekend).
