While being a guinea pig for a software test, watching several groups try to coordinate for a tutorial via conference call and Skype makes me appreciate just how much better Google’s new hangout feature is — that said, they seem to need screen sharing, and google isn’t doing that (yet? please?). On the other hand, neither does Skype in the real world, and VNC (for fuck sake) and and old school conference call is the only thing working.
The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.— William Gibson
