High-powered business executives are probably always being connected to one conference call or another from atop their lofty glass buildings that make people look like ants. Their meetings planned months in advance, these shadowy businessmen and women use web conferencing to secretly pull the strings of corporate America like sinister puppeteers.

Some time around 1930, JRR Tolkien started off the whole Lord of the Rings series by telling his children bed time stories about a little character he called “The Hobbit.” He’d been dreaming up the world of the Hobbit since he was a child himself. In doing so, Tolkien pretty much invented the whole “Fantasy Adventure with Elves and Dwarves” genre single handedly.
He also proposed what is perhaps the most glamorous conference call technology of all time, the Palantíri, or seeing Stones of Númenor. These were a set of 7 crystal balls that could be used for videoconferencing from Eressëa all the way across Middle Earth.
In these latter days, the stones are lost, the Elves have sailed into the West, and the “little folk” are only a bustle in the hedgerow. Today we can pick our smartphones out of our “pocketses” and videoconference with three people spread across three continents for free.
But if you had the choice, which one is better: a conference call, or a Seeing Stone of Númenor?

The Borg are a highly evolved species of cybernetic organisms in the Star Trek Universe whose goal is to “Achieve perfection.” They generously offer to assimilate less perfect species into their collective.
Sometimes the inferior species (like humans) aren’t so keen on being drones in a perfect collective.
In 2013, TV Guide named the Borg #4 on their list of “60 Nastiest Villains of All Time,” but as the Borg like to say:
“Resistance is futile.”
So how did the Borg get to be so powerful? They have better meetings. Seriously!… Read more →
