As promised, here is some video footage from yesterday’s virtual company meeting with Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers utilizing TelePresence to conduct the first global, virtual company meeting. I hope it gives you the flavor for the virtualness (is that a word?) of the attendees from around the country and around the world (Amsterdam, London, Bangalore, Atlanta, Boxborough, RTP and Irvine). You can get a small sense for the experience we had yesterday for this very cool use of the TelePresence technology for this meeting, but until you see it in person, it is tough to describe…and this video doesn’t do it full justice.We then turn to Cisco’s Chief Demonstration Officer, Jim Grubb, for three questions* about Cisco’s first-ever, global virtual company meeting.1. What is a virtual company meeting?2. How did this virtual company meeting happen? 3. What technology was used for this virtual meeting?*In our videos going forward, so that we are to-the-point, don’t meander and give the topline information for busy viewers, we will implement a “three questions” rule.
