Gotomeeting

If you, like me, listen to the radio any length of time, you will be familiar with the ads for gotomeeting.com. I picked up that you need to use the phone as well as a computer to use this service, which makes it a no for me. I am currently attending my first meeting through it, offered by prosper.com. I chose to not make the phone call. I don't want to spend an hour with the phone in my ear or on speakerphone. So I am just watching the action on the computer. I am still learning a bit just be watching, but there are obviously a lot of things being said, a lot of clarification I am missing.

A nice feature is the question and answer box. It's essentially a chat box that allows meeting participants to participate actively. I have asked if there is an alternative to calling in.

While I wait for them to get to the questions I am cruising around making journal entries and actually going to prosper to look at some of the options shown in the webinar. I will have a better chance to get into the details at the real-life seminar in San Francisco next February, anyway. Too cool, that.
