With the service, which starts from the end of November, the two firms say they are creating the world's largest online, voice-connected community.

I have no idea what this means or its business implications, but aren't we getting a little over-connected :)

I think longer term more business meetings/conferences will take place online in Second Life type places - faster broadband, multiple processors, virtual reality, unlimited storage - these are answers to problems we haven't addressed yet.

I would have thought that Facebook would be a hotter proposition at the moment, which makes me wonder if they tried Facebook first, and if Facebook said no, I'm guessing they are cooking up plans of their own?

That is inevitable. It was just a matter of time.

Our new office is set up for online video. Seemed like the thing to do. But, so far email and phone has been fine. It will have some applications, but I'm starting to wonder if, for the most part, this type of thing is solving a problem that does not exist.

Oh great - a couple million teenagers with free calling?

Bart: Is Al there?
Moe: Al?
Bart: Yeah, Al. Last name Kahalic?
Moe: Hold on, I'll check. Phone call for Al... Al Coholic. Is there an Al Coholic here?

This looks more like an attempt to get teenagers hooked on VoIP rather than to generate any serious revenue.

weeks, that is true IMHO.

There will be few more technologies too solving problems that might be created by ideas like this.

Voice Spam Filter is one good example, as someone touched it a bit in this thread.

Long-distance transport industry carbon emissions are a problem that don't exist? Since when can the abolition of geography through advances in communication technology be anything else but a good thing for our physical environment?
