Virtually Collaborating

by Dave Michels

To collaborate simply means one or more working toward a goal. It isn’t even one or more people; bees collaborate on honey making. Collaboration is about as non-technical as it gets. People were collaborating before electricity, computers and telephones were ever imagined. Collaboration becomes an exercise in technology when the collaborators are not in the same time or place. It wasn’t long ago that such a concept was nonsense. Today, it’s child’s play.
