Chapter 4 talks about social mechanisms in communication and collaboration. HP has developed a collaboration system which takes video conferencing to the next level. Here is link to a picture of their Halo meeting room (http://h71028.www7.hp.com/enterprise/cache/572524-0-0-0-121.html) and videos can also be found on their site. To me this technology seems like an amazing upgrade from board room meetings where groups of people in a company who were not able to be present must listen and participate simply through a speaker phone or low quality video images. In this new system it feels as if the people were actually sitting in the same room as you. What advantages would this life-like atmosphere bring to the table? What do you think about this new system and can you see it’s implementation being widespread?
