Collaboration Takes Many Forms

I ran across this article about Bell Labs today and it was very interesting. Bell Labs is a very forward thinking organization and they are looking at the value of persistence and serendipity in remote work.

ProtonMedia has discussed both of these topics a number of times and noted that persistence and serendipity are only possible when you move your idea of collaboration away from time-bound events and start thinking about the value of always-on virtual spaces. These limitless virtual spaces connect people over both distance and time.

I may be slightly jaded, but I believe that this can be done more effectively in collaboration software like ProtoSphere, but it is interesting how one might solve the same challenge with a Telepresence Robot. Check out the Bell Labs blog and read what they are saying by clicking here.
