Desktop Videoconferencing: History and Future

UPDATE April 12, 2020: The stay at home orders during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic prove the worth of videoconferencing for staying connected with loved ones and for telecommuting.


I gave my last presentation on videoconferencing in 2009.  Here are the slides.

I remember when I talked about “mobile videoconferencing” in the last 2 slides, that I might have been pushing my luck with prognostication.  Looking back, I am very glad I did, because, now, in 2018, mobile videoconferencing is seen in almost every movie, TV show, and in the 2018 Olympics.

Videoconferencing is finally easy-to-use AND mobile!  🙂
