as we repeatedly relearn, internet conferencing, video conferencing, and
email are great tools for when the group knows eachother and has established
working relationships.  when they don't have such relationships, these nice
hi tech systems seem to amplify misunderstanding to an occasionally
horrifying degree.

i assure you i wish it was otherwise.  i do not live as remotely as you
(excuse my making assumptions from your email address and aspersions on
nz's distance from some arbitrary concept of center), but the pain of
transport and comms bites me severely and continually.  i am an old net
geek and spend a lot of time communicating with other old net geeks.  but
if i do not know them, we fly if we can and phone if we can't.  

we're all still funny monkeys and seem to need to scratch eachother's fleas
