Skype All-Hands: Works really well

I did a "Skype All Hands" this morning. Surprisingly it worked much better than a face to face all-hands, or a teleconference-all-hands. To be specific the problem that I mostly face is - people don't talk, they don't ask questions during such all-hands meetings. In a face to face all-hands meeting, it takes a while before the first guy asks a question, and then the second guy, and many questions come towards the end of the meeting. A Skype all-hands on the other had turned out to very interactive, people asked many questions, they really participated in the meeting. It seems like engineers like typing much more than talking. Well, I love this. As an added advantage - you already have the meeting minutes (cut-and-paste from IM log), and you can do this across the oceans.

A great blog with very interesting posts!
I started reading with "Hacks for finding an office space for startups" and ended up reading almost all of the posts displayed on the main page :)

& yes, Skype & IRC are interesting tools to host all hands :)

Do you like playing in the game which you need to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.
