Physical Bandwidth


Last week we got unexpected visit by Boštjan, our CEO. Normally, he does most of the management remotely from our New York office using Skype and emails and he only visits us every two months or so. But momentarily, we have so many exciting things going on that even the broadband Internet connection wasn't sufficient for efficient communication between him and the rest of the team. In Boštjan's own words, he wanted to have at his disposal the full bandwidth of in-person communication. I wish somebody would calculate the amount of information exchanged during an in-person meeting so that it would be easier to decide when to send an email, set a skype call, or hop on a plane for an in-person meeting. Contrary to the popular belief, technical solutions are often not the most efficient solutons.
