Answers are in: What’s the Future of Communications

A few days ago, Robert and I had a brain fart, we wanted to see if we could try to synchronize micromedia into a virtual event, after seeing how people were using these tools for emergencies (LA SD fires) it would be interesting to try use them in a collaborative effort.

On this wiki, you’ll find the instructions we gave the community to follow, it was pretty simple, you had to use micromedia and answer the following question: “What is the future of communications”.

For some, the answer was too broad, and for others they verged to other discussions, all were great, I read and listened to all of them so far. It was very appropriate timing given all the announcements that are happening on the websphere and from being at the Nokia event. I’ll summarize some of the responses:

What is the future of communication?
