More video conference comments
The sprint has been quieter than I expected. We have had a few conversations between locations, but the quality isn't quite good enough. The biggest problem is the microphones. The rooms we are using are big and it's hard to hear someone who isn't intentionally talking into the microphone. The Mountain View room is a large classroom, where you must hold or wear the microphone to be heard in New York. We may do better if we get a conference room that is intended for meetings rather than classes. Despite the problems, it has been really handy to be able to talk on occasion.
