Pink cut-out hearts, red roses and a box of chocolates can only mean one thing. It’s almost Valentine’s Day! What are you doing for this romantic holiday?Not everyone is lucky enough to be in the same location as their special someone, and the time and money involved in flying cross-country often keeps us from spending time with those we love the most. With Cisco ūmi*, you can see your loved ones without even leaving your living room.
Here are some ideas if you’re celebrating via Cisco ūmi this February 14:
Pick a delicious recipe and have each person make the same meal. You can even cook “together” by pointing your ūmi camera at the kitchen.

Cisco employees from all around the globe gathered to celebrate the latest phase of our Human Network Campaign, “Together, we are the human network.” To kick off this exciting new campaign we held a global internal event where we challenged offices across the globe to form one letter from the word, “together”. The purpose was to have employees experience, first hand, the power of being together. Increasingly, through video, we can become closer than ever to feeling like we are truly together.
Employees accepted the challenge and began coordinating this effort. Did I mention that the word “together” was to be created in cursive? Many emails and a couple weeks later, the footage was complete..Internationally, we proved that through uncooperative weather and a pressing deadline, we managed to accomplish the task!
Look at the photo below to guess which Cisco offices formed each letter!
The human network becomes exponentially more powerful and more human with video. Networked video solutions at home, at work and everywhere we go help us to be more engaged with one another. The human network isn’t just connected anymore, now we are involved, more authentic and more genuine through all the capabilities that video provides.
This global endeavor was a collaborative effort, quickly executed on a shoe string budget. Across the globe, teams creatively managed to not only replicate the letters but to also bring in employees from all facets of Cisco.
