Microsoft Live Meeting Channels Company's Unwillingness To Discuss Opening Up
from the let-the-technology-do-the-work-for-you dept
A bunch of security companies have been complaining lately that Microsoft hasn't been particularly open lately with them and how they can integrate with Microsoft's latest operating system, Vista. Microsoft finally decided to respond and set up an online briefing, using their ever popular "Live Meeting" offering... except Live Meeting proceeded to kick out a bunch of the participants fifteen minutes in and wouldn't let them back in. It's obviously just a technology screwup, but considering the accusations of Microsoft not being open enough, it does seem particularly amusing that they'd screw up in such a manner. Perhaps the technology just sensed Microsoft's desire not to be so open. They say technology should help you achieve your goals, and perhaps Microsoft inadvertently succeeded.
