Secret truth of meetings.

There I was trapped in the wretched weekly video teleconference, when I came across this quote:
I mean, how many wasted hours have we all spent staring at a Polycom or ‘multi-tasking’ (i.e. barely tuning into the meeting) during a WebEx presentation?"
from the SL blog post Working in the virtual world.

Also so I can find it again IBM Research and Lotus Sametime 3D- Phase 2 shows a (badly acted) example of how IBM has integrated their IM client with voice and the ability to spawn virtual world sessions.
