  3. 3. Why Does This Matter? • World is: • • • • Smaller Flatter More Complex More Connected • Collaboration is more important than ever, but still done badly. • • • • “We built it and they didn’t come.” “The business” and IT don’t agree Business factors and human factors are not supported enough Plenty of “People-Ready Software,” not enough “Software-Ready People” Flickr photo courtesy of Eric Fischer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/walkingsf/6858366278/

Bell patent) • Peak: 1950s-1970s • Claim to Fame: Cuban Missile Crisis, Watergate, Batman • Strengths: real-time interaction, with inflection • Weaknesses: (usually) no record of conversation, requires synchronous availability Fun fact: When was the Fax machine invented?

  20. 20. Video Conferencing • • • • • Born: late 1980s (PictureTel) Peak: Yet to come? (Skype, Facetime, Cisco UC, Lync, etc.) Claim to Fame: Jack Bauer? Strengths: Instant, integrated*, context and non-verbal cues Weaknesses: Quality of video, emerging norms of behavior, not evenly distributed at enterprise level
