It looks like Cisco is pulling out all the stops to make people in general more aware of their push for Telepresence, aka, video conferencing for the big corporate set. They have just launched a contest for>everyone to tell them they want "Telepresence."
I have to wonder if they have heard of Skype? With Skype or even Logitech's SightSpeed, the concepts behind Telepresence exist today. With Skype currently working on multi-party video calling (or so I hear) there is in my mind a great deal of alignment there that should be explored.
Since Cisco is one of the few companies that could snap up Skype without blinking an eye, it has to be on someone's mind there to consider.
