Re: what was the most surprising part
nasimon - I've seen a lot of resistance to videoconferencing in places where I've worked. That's just one, anecdotal example though.

sam masud - Well, steak would have gone bad on the planeride home, but she seemed to particularly appreciate her kibble and canned food.

Re: what was the most surprising part
@kq4ym: I have seen both in action and it's significantly different. You can't do a training session with a few in person and a few remote people using Skype or google. Also have you ever noticed how do the people at the farther end of the table appear to the other side? They are hardly visible.

Re: what was the most surprising part
Although Cisco may not be a "shoe-in" for success in the teleconferencing market they certain seemed to have put on a good show this time. I'm still wondering why there's a market for fairly expensice setups when Google and Skype can provide really simple capabilities for video calling?

Re: what was the most surprising part
Video Conferencing, in particular TelePresence is a major IT solution in large enterprises. A head of a major bank who had to fly 2 hours one way three to four times a week simplified his routine by having a tele presence setup at just two of his offices. He would call in his direct reports into a room in their local office with Cisco TelePresence setup. This is just one example.

Re: what was the most surprising part
The aha moment? Well, the s-bomb keynote was interesting not just for the s-bomb, but also for discussion of Cisco's virtualization strategy.

Cisco's try at simplifying videoconferencing was intriguing. I wonder whether most people are interested in videoconferencing, no matter how simple it is.

what was the most surprising part
@ Mitch:

This looks really exciting. So what was the most surprising part of the Cisco Live - the "ah" moment apart from the word [email protected]# in the keynote.
