Transcripts
bwhaynes Brad here: Q:What user information is collected by Cisco and how is it used?
chris_nickl i may have missed it but is there any encryption or can i have the data live solely in my datacenter
chris_nickl (as solely as you can on endpoints)
Cisco Champion Radio It sounds complicated — but when you experience it, suddenly it all becomes very straightforward about “which tool for the job”
NathanielAvery can you set rules to block phone numbers and SSNs etc. from being transmitted in chat windows and the like? what about archiving?
Cisco Champion Radio Check out Jonathan’s recent blog posts here: http://blogs.cisco.com/author/jonathanrosenberg
isseykun for us, UNDP, this is interesting. specially when we have people in islands working with other agencies
isseykun and im concerned about the security of the rooms
bwhaynes Q: regarding security, can Jonathon speak to the collection and use of information where Cisco collects and retains personal information?
isseykun question: files shared within the rooms are stored in the cloud? and how long do they retain? and storage size
Warcop isseykun: I believe it was mentioned that storage is infinite at this time and that may change.
Cisco Champion Radio If you post pictures of your new puppy, you can check back when it’s 3
Cisco Champion Radio Did someone mention H.264? http://blogs.cisco.com/collaboration/industry-first-h-264-video-endpoint-calls-firefox-via-webrtc-enabled-project-squared
ghostinthenet So… when are we setting up a Cisco Champions group on Project Squared?
SampleFive we actually did planning for this call on Squared!
ghostinthenet It’s certainly a beginning.
RickVanover I’d love something like this to remove email from my list of things to check.
isseykun q: content shared are editable via this platform, say word,excel,ppt files?
SampleFive no, content is viewable and dowloadable, but not editable within the app
bwhaynes really like the app, its like running with scissors
Cisco Champion Radio @bwhaynes +1
isseykun q: conversations within the room, how far back can we refer to them later? are the chats recorded in some way?
Warcop isseykun: I believe it was mentioned that storage is infinite at this time and that may change.
Cisco Champion Radio If you post pictures of your new puppy, you can check back when it’s 3
Warcop That is a good wrap statement!

The Evolution and Impact of Collaboration Technologies

As I sit here on an airplane en-route to San Jose with my MacBook Pro at hand, heading to an industry-leading networking event (albeit on my own time, yes – this is officially vacation), I’ve found myself reflecting on collaboration technologies and how I’ve seen them evolve in the short 15 years I’ve been working with them. After all, it has become one of those things that I spend the majority of my day doing these days, working as a partner engineer specializing in Collaboration.

One of my first experiences with collaboration technologies was back during my third IT job, sometime circa 2001, only a few short years after the Cisco acquisition of Selsius networks brought the Call Manager product to us, and I was working for a company supporting what we now call ‘telepresence’; back then we simply referred to it as  ‘video conferencing’.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s report on the health hazards of smoking. While we are encouraged by the significant progress we have made in reducing the percentage of smokers from 43% to 18% in the past 50 years, the cost impact of smoking continues to ride high. According to the surgeon general’s report, the annual cost attributed to smoking in the US is between $289 billion and $333 billion.

According to the Cancer facts and figures 2013, in spite of Smoking-related diseases being the world’s most preventable cause of death, tobacco accounts for the cause of 1 in 5 deaths. In addition, the quality of life is significantly impacted due to the increased risk of chronic diseases.
