The Future of Telecommuting
Yonatan Zunger

Don’t think “shared whiteboard”, think “shared drawing space”. (It may still get called a whiteboard for marketing purposes but it won’t use an actual whiteboard.) The hardware for the physical meeting already exists: Microsoft’s Surface Hub. The missing link so far is a collaborative drawing program (I haven’t seen one, and it appears that Microsoft has tested such a feature but it’s not currently available) but it should be possible. People at home could use their tablets as a second screen to participate; I’m sure Microsoft would love to sell them something from the Surface family for the purpose.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
