I work for a large multi-national company, and I live in this “virtual” world every day. Although video conferencing is more useful than just talking on the phone, it is still in no way a replacement for meeting face to face. Travel budgets are very tight in the current economy, but in a recent trip to Singapore, my colleagues and I were able to address many issues in a one hour, face to face, meeting. These were things we had been struggling with for months via teleconferences. The more contentious an issue, the more difficult it is to discuss it through virtual forums… our legislators need to meet face to face!
