Tips for Videoconferencing

From the New York Times, these are some good basics to keep in mind when you're on the videemaphone with your colleagues. I find it's one thing to be the person running the meeting -- I have no problem focusing, filtering distractions, and all the rest of it. But it gets a lot harder to focus when I'm on the periphery of a meeting.

It's so easy to start picking through email. Or do a little IMing. Or spacing out and looking out the window.

Well the last bit you could do if you were in the conference room with everyone else. But you should knock off the rest of it.
