I can't make the meeting, but my avatar can


Could it be that meetings of the future will be avatar-only, while we humans get to stay at our desks? And if, as this article on the advent of technology that makes true, productive 3-D digital meetings possible really has arrived, what does that mean for us humans? Do we get to goof off while our avatars do all the work? There are lots of funky implications that I hadn't thought about before, but no matter how good the technology may be, I still think the best way to meet is in person, not in avatar. Then again, I haven't experienced a true 3-D digital meeting, so maybe I could be persuaded to think otherwise?
