Have you seen more men with moustaches than usual over the past week?
Every November, men are challenged to change their physical appearance by growing a “mo” (slang for moustache) for 30 days to support men’s health.
The idea of Movember was inspired in 2003 when a few guys from Melbourne, Australia, decided to bring the moustache back and create awareness around men’s health. No money was raised that year however in 2004 the campaign evolved, raising over $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer of Australia.
The following post was contributed by Frank, one of our Cisco ūmi beta users.
It was one thing to hear about my niece Sarah’s engagement…..it was quite another thing to see it live from Greenville, South Carolina -- piped right into our family room in Saratoga, California.
With ūmi, I was able to see details like the glitter of Sarah’s shiny ring and how my niece -- who just yesterday was joining “Brownies” -- was beaming with a distinct glow.
I learned that only hi-def “Cisco ūmi” can broadcast and show a sense of “radiance” pouring from Sarah as she talked about the engagement to Noel.
Maybe now we can call these “ūmi-moments”?

Imagine using your brand new high-definition TV to connect with family and friends from all over the world? Imagine seeing and hearing them so clearly that it’s almost as if they were right there in the living room?
That’s the reality of ūmi telepresence, a brand new technology from Cisco that makes it all happen at the touch of a button.
I have seen the demos and I can tell you for a fact: it is just so clear, the experience is unbelievable – you feel you are right next to the people you’re watching.
