I am a big fan of working globally. I love the way technology has revolutionized the way we can manage our teams and you can find the right people with the right skillset when you need it. There are lots of great tools that have been developed that allow desktop sharing and collaboration. Both WebEx and GoToMeeting are pay-for-services I have used in the past–being able to show your desktop and share your environment is a great way of doing remote presentations and demos. Recently I came across Adobe’s ConnectNow–which is a lot like the other two services, but has one major advantage–it is free. And unlikely some of the other desktop sharing programs it works equally well on both Macs and PCs since it leverages Adobe’s flash technology.
Check it out, it is very cool!
