Recently, Microsoft guru Alex St. John posted an acute rant on video conferencing. He asks how we live in a world where we drive Teslas and VR is more than a possibility, yet video conferencing is stuck in the dark ages. What gives?
As the founder of a video conferencing startup, I wholeheartedly agree with St. John. Some of the brightest minds are creating crazy technology around us – plant-based meat, cancer detecting therapies, reusable rockets. Meanwhile, the state of video conferencing is abysmal.
Four and a half years ago, my co-founder and I decided to enter the world of video conferencing anyway.
