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 →

At the end of a meeting, have you ever thought, “Wow, it was an awesome meeting with so many amazing ideas”, but only to have your ideas fade away a week later when you want to revisit them? Let’s face it, there are so many distractions in a day that people fade in and out during meetings, particularly meetings that are over an hour long.
There can be times where nothing seems to stick in your mind even if you are paying full attention.

A writer I know wrote a book sitting at her landlord’s dining table in Ontario, then flew to a beach cabin in Bali and wrote the sequel. Meanwhile, she’s an employee of a publishing house in New York City.
She goes in to “the office” about twice a year. The job of “escritor” has evolved so much recently.
The carefree nomadic existence of “surfer/writers” like Lauren Hill, the Queen of Funky Sandals, would not be possible without virtual story conferencing.
The interesting thing is that virtual conferences are actually better than traditional sit-down meetings. And not just for the writers with sand in their toes.
Getting on the same page
People think writing is a completely solitary activity. Yes and no. There is a reasonable amount of sipping a piña colada beachside and tapping away on a laptop. But writing a book is a highly collaborative team process involving senior editors, copy editors, graphics and layout artists, and then the publicist. An agent is involved too, personal “readers,” and in many cases the subject of the book.
The virtual story conference gets all these people on the same page, and keeps them there, with no “dreaded overhead.”
