Sqwiggle: Always-On Remote Workplace

Sqwiggle appears to be a way of managing a virtual workplace through real-time, always-on video conferencing. This might not sound new, to date most attempts at this have sucked due to cumbersome interfaces, server bandwidth limiting quality, connections problems with network address translation, and high cost. To date, only Google Hangout has proven reliable in that once you’re up and running, it stays running, but it leaves a lot to be desired for workflow. Matt Boyd sent me a link to Squiggle’s introductory video, which I watched with great interest; it promises to be more elegant. Keep an eye on this! I wonder how it will work for group coordination next time I’m playing Star Wars: The Old Republic :-)
