So Many Conferencing Options

Join.me, StartMeeting.com, Freeconference.com, Yuuguu.com, G+ Hangout, skype and so many more in the no cost variety.

Yet Another Video Conf Start-up

March 23, 2012

Garrett Smith from VoIP Supply wrote, "This service isn't all that new or different from the half dozen or so that already exists.

Craig Walker, Grand Central's co-founder, is jumping back into the VoIP space, according to his tweet (and the TechCrunch article that had to follow said tweet).

"LogMeIn's free screen sharing and online meeting service, join.me, just added free internet VoIP conferencing to make quick, ad-hoc collaboration even easier from virtually anywhere in the world.

I had a couple of good conversations today. One was with Greg Plum who has embarked on a new chapter in his career at StartMeeting.com. Plum is exciting about building the channel for this start-up conferencing company for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that he believes that StartMeeting.com will be a disruptor, a serious game changer in the conference space. They offer conferencing - audio and web - like so many others, right?
