One of the things futurists often discuss is convergence and how future technology will make collaboration and the way we do business easier, more intuitive and more productive.

There's a new round of talk about the future of collaboration around social media. In a profile of John Chambers of Cisco that appeared in the Wall St. Journal ("Silicon Valley Survivor"), Michael Malone refers to the Internet 2.0.

In a rare mention of one of our clients in this blog, Avistar has been doing more than talk about the future of collaboration via videoconferencing -- as Chambers does in Malone's article. Nice to see Avistar's vision being validated by Cisco.
