This video highlights some of the shortcomings of traditional communications tools, and why new collaboration platforms provide opportunities for improved productivity. We've all been on a conference call like this:
Blogs, discussion forums, wikis and other collaborative tools can let the discussions go on continuously, without interruptions from barking dogs or tardy colleagues. Applying these tools to improve communication and enhance productivity is a big part of the Center for Social Media's mission.
There is obviously still a place for face-to-face and group phone meetings, when conducted well.

This video is a helpful reminder of the need well-conceived structure and operation of those discussions. And of course, we will enable the conversations to continue through the Network site.
