Dilbert has nothing over real life
Bennett, I could give you a hug for that article.
They have me heading up a Sharepoint "competency group" which includes someone from Sweden and someone from China, that's it. It was suggested we have our verbal web/phone monthly meeting at 7am Central Time so the poor guy in Asia didn't have to stay until evening over there, because that's what these other CG's do.
I asked why in the world a CG on a collaboration tool has to have a verbal meeting at all. :-) I think they got the irony so they relented on that but suggested web/verbal "kickoff meeting" might still be good to have. Sigh....
I sent a "kickoff email" instead, we'll see how that works out. :-)
