"So it starts with having that technology platform. And then from there, we have made massive strides to really simplify the whole process for both our customers and for our partners. We wanted to remove a lot of that friction and enable them to move fast and move really simply when selling to their customers down market. So lots of excitement down on that SMB space for us. If you don't use the channel, you're not going to succeed until the telephony. It is the name of the game. So tell me more about the technology service brokers and how Cisco WebEx is working with them. Love it. So first and foremost, Cisco is a channel's lead channels first company. Our partners are at the heart of everything we build, every offer we create, everything we do here at Cisco in particularly in Cisco WebEx. Traditionally, we have sold through that refill model. But as we look toward the future and look towards some pretty aggressive goals, we know we needed to do things a little bit differently and expand those routes to market. Beyond just our traditional refill route. So back in July of this year, we launched our agency route to market. We launched with intelligence. We have recently expanded that new route to include to lyrics. We watch with those folks back in March and super excited. It's unlocked a whole new set of partners for us to go to go work with and go evangelize web apps alongside. But something else that did that I quite frankly didn't anticipate was back to that amazing just a tremendous group of traditional resellers. It's given those partners a new way to transact with Cisco. And back to your prior question on what we're doing to really drive velocity down market. For our existing resellers, it's given them a choice of how to transact with smaller customers. Oftentimes in a simpler and more profitable way. So we've seen a ton of early success both with those new partners that we've acquired through those technology service brokers along with just a newfound reinvigoration with our existing partners down market. It's been really exciting and we're just getting started. So we're here at channel partners. WebEx is doing really great. What else are you showing at the channel? Yeah, you know, separate from some of our exciting technology. One of the things we're debuting here this week is our sustainability certification for our partners. And circular circular economy is something very important to Cisco..

"They have. I mean, you know, it's not yes. There's limits. This is software as a service. So as we've developed along, it becomes more customized. As Microsoft opens up capabilities in teams for branding, it becomes more branded. So it's a combination of I see it as generally a partner with the technology partner. And with the service providers whom we work with, this stuff changes. So there's always more coming down the pike. We can talk about that as well. But it's exciting, it's always changing, basically. Well, you know, we started with differentiation and I think we're ending our podcast with it because it sounds to me like what you're saying is, you know, it's important as you enter this market that you maybe bring along a partner that allows you to be different. And it gives you the it is a technology unto itself integration between different systems and there's a bunch of them out there. There's slack and there's Google. And there's of course Microsoft Teams and WebEx and zoom. And really it says interstices where we operate. It's making sure the sit messaging and the communications happen properly between the systems. Teams is where we've been focused. But so as an operator, you have a choice to either find a partner, who works with you or build that internally, basically, it's quite a large dev project. So generally, it's an outsourced one. So you know, as we look into 2022, I think it's the time of year that a lot of business owners, a lot of people, and also since we've got our enterprises on board, a lot of folks looking at their department, what's your message for all those different communities? What do you want to say to them? I mean, listen to the customer is most important. You know, it's sort of like people are using technology in different ways. And one thing that we're removed from is sitting down with lots of customers, I try to do it a bit, talk to enterprise IT people in companies. And say, this is what my users want. And then think about that when you're putting together your package or your integration or your your ecosystem of technology partners for whatever else you're selling. And I think what's exciting is that a lot of the former walled gardens are opening up. Maybe with Microsoft opening teams and having success and getting more and more users, but making it more and more open..

Yes, our workdays are getting longer

"As we've all learned over the past twelve months due to the pandemic tools like zoom in slack at made it a lot easier to get our work done without being in the office but there is a downside to all this money. You're right bret. It feels like your workday has gotten a lot longer and if you feel that way you're not alone because we have tech nearby to help us work. It's become a lot harder to call it a day at the end of the day which we never get to. Sometimes joining now is usa today. Tech reporter terry collins who wrote a story about our longer work days that you can read on tech dot usa today dot com terry. Good too heavy back in man. How bad is it Man well thanks for having again and bread. I appreciate it. It's bad because you know it just comes down to the to be having you know for many of us. We restarted decide when it's time to turn off the switch. It's one of the things we're all experiencing you know and we may be in denial about it for wine. A urine pandemic grape will be working and having jobs in order to pay our bills liberal lives and whatnot and then to. it's just also been a great distraction. Take our minds off of well. We'll still in this pandemic you know trying to ward off trying to be safe from this deadly disease subjects in my story Tina schweiger said quote sometimes to take a shower. Or sometimes i don't. It's still not to do things because of kobe. And if you enjoy working ten scale it up you'll say oh i'll do a bit more. Research knocked email out. She basically said it's very easy to slip out of work. My story i mentioned a harvard business school study of more than three million people worldwide said average workdays increased by almost forty nine minutes from the pandemic early stages now by forty percent and a gartner study damaging story about forty percent. Say the workdays become longer and and gonna research spoke to Alexa cameron said turn workdays are somewhere between the two or three hours longer when we were back mcgrew working in the office. So that gives you an indication that some many ways we were we are working longer. So are there specific trends. That experts have spotted that are pointing to why we're working longer days while we're all remote while some of those reasons. Are you know we have problems disconnecting and we have like digital attractions Overloads hurt bringing noise. We were as as i was talking and the research. I spoke to mix to working longer. It's well said up that there's a growing consensus that That we're we're more more times in stressful working together working Apart from where we were in person and it one of those reasons were having more virtual meetings in debt therefore to be harder to the gate coworkers body language there's more vigil visual information to adjust included slide shows graphics and also being seen on camera curbs need to have you know quote unquote an on air personality. Well that yeah. I think i've felt that way to you. Know yeah hold on you know we get more phone calls for tax. Were emails more messages. Almost what you said. Mike and and you know we are seeing each other in a workplace. So we're always just have this no always on mentality. Why also wonder if you know. Sometimes since i'm working at home i take a break to put a little andrea. Enter to go make a sandwich. And then i feel guilty. When six o'clock comes that. I'm don't stick around longer to any advice. These folks gave you that you found from people that you interviewed that. I'm how to cut back on some of these extra forty nine minutes or two to three hours depending on what craziness year involved in. Yeah yeah they. We should really try to take a break one possible. Whether that's a series of by timothy breaks across the day edition of maybe taken an hour hour long lunch at teachers said than done especially in our line of work. I like one of my subsequent story. Kelly christoffersen who works at a houston based opera company. Said that quote we were just ourselves becoming available as multiple worse are always online whether we admit it or not. And i said we're more vulnerable. And says that i guess is more of a share experience through the pandemic raw trying to adapt and get through it. She example Talked to her depth shit april meetings on on platforms or you can zoom will meet. Microsoft teams webex. Her meeting her. I mean again at seven and then she purposely disconnected by pm and she's doing virtual the following day she tries to go poor rhyme or take a walk and she has her poem with her but she tries to not take a look at her. Feel it when when it's going up. She wants to check. Take that break and so we just have to just try to find the strength to know when when to step away and there are some employers. Who are trying to help do that. As well as i mentioned a company in iowa tech engineering company in austin texas there were gonna initiative to create a better work life balance one things. They've done in begay their workers two weeks off without impacting their vacation time and some of the departments are tested. A no me fridays. It's as we've got into this a year ago to work remotely and we've also got a way to continue to work remotely but also without jeopardizing our welby. I'm sure a lot of listeners would love a no meeting monday in a no meeting tuesday and meeting wednesday and run down the week but thanks as always for joining us. It was great having you and look forward to having you on again. Big appreciate it

Ex-Cisco Employee Convicted for Deleting 16K Webex Accounts

"I'm gonna tell you about a chap called sudesh qasaba ramesh and he was working at cisco which of course the giant technology firm working there from Midway through twenty sixteen up until april twenty eighteen where he departed the company. Okay so he spent. How many years say he was there for almost two years to fully months. After he left the company's employment he decided to log into their systems specifically some cisco systems which were hosted on an amazon. Aws server when those cloud buckets those blobs of computer mitchell. Don't kinds of clever things up there in the cloud. Do we know where he is in america. Always in the state somewhere else can start. Yes yes But he is no longer under their employees so he's no longer working with them but this is only months after he left. Let me just let me just repeat that. This was fi months after he some heat when he was able to do it. Not just he thought about it he actually did he did. He logged in Has it never happened to you. That a client has left the gates open after you no longer working for them anymore. I'm sure they have. I'm sure correct answer because you've never checked because that would be a bad thing. It would be yes. I i exactly. I'm sure there have been Companies i've worked for who haven't changed the credentials and you're working for technology and security firms Well in some cases. Yes so. I'm just saying i'm just saying i'm not surprised that just when i was working down kentucky fried chicken to him some extra bob. It wasn't yeah we'll okay but this was cisco you're right so cisco's is a big dog. Okay so five months. After this guy's finished employed he manages to log in. yeah he looks in someone. Forgot to do something. I wanted just having a nose you think or know. He's not just news around. They'll just have a curious to see if the company still doing well in his absence. He's not doing that. I wonder how cisco doing without me. No no i miss. I have yeah. Yeh we've all done it. That's why. I wonder how bad doing no i've left up shit. Grew up to something else. You're saying yes. So sudesh ramesh. He looks in to this. Aws server and deletes. Oh four hundred fifty six virtual machines. Oh boy which were being used by cisco to power. Its webex video conferencing service. Oh for god's he's trying to bring go to it's knees through its web x.'s. As though webex doesn't bring the entire world to its knees on a regular basis whenever you into it. Music video chat yet. The video conferences. You must have used it. Have you guys used webex video Yes pre pandemic. Oh yes it's been usurped by things. Like zoom zoom really has sort of caught everyone's imagination now hasn't but webex was. It's still worsley going strong in its eased by some organizations. What's the mark corporate one. So as a consequence of ramesh deleting all these virtual machines as a result of this over sixteen thousand webex teams accounts. Were shut down for up to two weeks. Imagine the impact on productivity. That's right productivity. Must have gone through the roof. Yes well we can't have a meeting. Oh darn we'll have to do some work instead over the sending email You're on mute and having all those kind of kenya hemi austria on my last call cheese every over there so they can hear you over the line. This is the way so. I'm just doing next to somebody who did exactly that on the national conference call five. Am called into the office showers loud as that two countries anyway and so sixteen thousand accounts were shut down up to two weeks cisco spent roughly one point four million dollars restoring the damage paying people to restore the autism restore them. Don't you have to just press. Go back to you control z. Issue dragged out of the track. They would have backups. Shirley we would think so. Wouldn't you and they also had to pay over one million dollars to customers in refunds. 'cause they're hosting all. These webex is for other companies. People would have had contracts and they would have had to say. oh terribly. sorry you haven't been to use it two weeks. We can haul webinars that people were not able to host yet. Not just internal inside your company but one would have been given to customers. Mike god the product marketing manager is going insane thinking like from the marketing team. Like oh there goes yeah calendar. We've got a problem. We've got to change the landing pages real to reel who's who's at full the guy did it. Yeah ultimately him. Yeah yeah. I mean like leaving your car unlocked right so if i left my car unlocked and then someone stole something from inside my car which has happened to me. Whose fault is it right. Ultimately prison stole a thing for my car because it is parked in my drive. But they're opportunist and you'd say well lock your doors dumb ass. Yes so so cisco should have looked dolls. Demolish had the kind of. I'm guessing pretty high level privileges to do that. Much damage that easily. I mean nobody locked. Is the countdown nine. A little bit. I mean jeez. Five months later. I mean i can understand if it was the day after he left but five months later. My guess is that win. Some sunlight ramesh left employment at the company. They may well have revoked his access to active directory and his ability to log into his email or something like that. But i wonder whether access to the aws server or something which was available to many people in the it poem. Maybe they were sharing credentials shared crafts. Yep and. I think that's probably what was happening. And it's hard to workout if you do share credentials inside an it team who might know those looking credentials in. It's a pain to change them. Because that's gonna affect lots of other people and lots of other services. Well not if you use a really good password manager. Well simplifies a lot right because you can change at the admin level for everybody. Yeah i suppose so if you also have services which might be logging into these systems and it may be. It's grabbing the password for everything. The real mistake here is sharing. Paul sweats right. There are teams of people where the password we'll be known to a variety of people and they'll log in they'll doing administration and all kinds of different maintenance and our work on a particular system and the thing is that they don't have individual password see can't just revoke a person's password scrape advice. We share passwords possibly shared. Yes we share passwords to run this. Podcast jimmy yes. You're not cisco though. I know we're not cisco but i'm saying we know better and we do it because the work around to do it. Any other way is too complicated like just ridiculously complicated. Can i show you cro- the if one of us were to leave smashing security to set up a podcast about. I didn't know piccoli predicament. Something in fact took off and weren't interested in smashing security any more than i would change the past or whoever remained would change the parts of those accounts. And so that you or whoever had left would no longer be a system really. Does this mean you're joining our podcast now. Is that what i'm understanding. It sounds like to me. So there's clearly some in the of cisco they should have changed the log in credentials right just like you would expect when people leave a company to hand in their badge or giving any keys which they have to look doors but shed credentials bad bad bad ideas so for something that business kercheval legs the kingdom. I mean it's one thing to say you know. Here's the marketing log in for. I don't know something really unimportant. But your admin credentials for your entire webex product. So cisco call sedition when they figured out what happened and say look. We obviously dismissed bad way and offer him a nice severance package and a hug will in a donut to get to the bottom. Exactly what his beef was with sysco. What made him do this with some months. Later is not really an act of passion is it. he was still doing. Shushing takes five months to stir it be angry with the company. But you're not angry necessarily move its customers and you're not probably angry with most of your former colleagues so remain professional. Don't take it out on them. Because what if you are though. What if you do eight all. Your fork is a justified in this case. Reminded me a little of the case of terry challenge. Do you remember terry. Childs was a former network administrator the city of san francisco back ten or fifteen years ago. I remember his name right. Well yes he infamously looked up. The city's entire network for days in two thousand and eight resets nor the admin passwords. So that only he knew them and he refused to reveal them to anybody and the excuse he gave and you know. He was arrested in things in a week and a half. Nothing was happening. Because no i'm gonna tell you the password you can't and he claimed it wasn't going to tell the bosses or the managers the passwords because he was concerned that they would indiscriminately share those credentials with third party contractors and so. He didn't like that. People were being careless with passwords. He was like l. So you so you the vaults you cannot break it and ultimately oh my go to me. The mayor of san francisco had to personally go and chat with him. He was the only trustworthy person. That doesn't sound just like a typical quote rogue employees. I think there's some mental stuff going on there because that's a baby or something. That's that's that goes beyond anyway sedation. Ramesh he pleaded guilty on. The ship has now been sentenced to twenty four months in the clink and to pay a fifteen thousand dollar fine as well and because he was here on a visa as well. I suspect he may find it difficult to stay case

Your top 2020 questions: "How do I unmute?"

"Our series on the most asked questions of the year. Michelle multi who is the managing editor for consumer tech at usa. Today is here with me and we're going to have some fun with easily hands down. The most asked question the year which is hey. How do i mute myself on zoom right michelle. I think that's the phrase of two thousand twenty year muted. Yes and just give me a second. Give me a second. i'll get there. It's not a hard thing. Why was it so hard for so many people. Do you think you know you forget the conversations that you have. You don't really have a button before you need to speak And i think the flip side is forget to themselves. I was in a meeting recently with a heavy typer. And i believe this heavy type or thought. He was on mute Thank goodness that's all we heard. It could have been so much worse but but it's unnatural for for folks to keep muting themselves when they're when they're typically used to just speaking. The good news is once you figure it out. You're able to do other things while you're in the meeting because they're not hearing you. Yes so it's so it's a very important thing to learn. Jefferson one of the things that i have mastered. Now that i am and i probably shouldn't tell my secrets but now that i'm home schooling my kids and in meetings at the same time i've mastered the art of the mute and hand before your mouth screaming kids and nobody notices but you gotta make sure that mute button is working And for all those people who've had a hard time is all you gotta do bottom of the screen audio. Click the button butte on mute. It's not hard. Just but you know. I would always recommend for anybody who does have trouble with zoom or the other video meetings before you have the meeting like an hour ahead of time two hours the day before. Figure it out play with the program. Click all the buttons figure out where everything is. It'll be much more relaxing for you to go through the process then in the heat of the moment when you know you have this big meeting coming up absolutely absolutely attest run is a key thing and if by chance you're accustomed to one program and you're doing an interview or a program in another again like jefferson said. Give it a test run. Don't assume you know zoom versus google meat versus webex. The most asked question of the year hardaway on mute.

Virtual eviction hearings can make horrible situations even worse

"Millions of americans remain unemployed in this pandemic and can't pay their rent so people are being evicted. All over the country eviction hearings have moved to zoom or webex or even the phone to limit the spread of covid nineteen in courtrooms but some tenants advocates say. The virtual hearings violate people's rights. There aren't procedures in place for people who don't have broadband access for example translators that would be required in court aren't required online. Eileen guo is a senior reporter on tech policy ethics and social issues at mit tech review. She's been reporting on this and she described a hearing she attended in jackson county missouri. I listened in on a hearing where the person was the victim to end being affected by phone. The lawyer for the landlord was appearing. I video and the judge was by video and her call and her hearing was interrupted three times because the call was dropped she was trying to present evidence so paper documents that no one could see and on the other hand the landlord and the judge where referring to documents that have been submitted in advance that she couldn't see the judge herself recognized that this was such an issue that when she was scheduling the hearing for another ten. That was calling in. She suggested that she appear in person. Because appearing virtually disadvantage her. It seems like it's confusing and also like this feels like it's not a good way to do work in some cases right like it's not always even a good way to do a meeting let alone and addiction like how did it come to this so in theory courts moving to video conferencing could have been a good thing it was meant to be a public health measure so the cares act allowed for courts to to think about whether or not they wanted to allow more actions and more court procedures to be virtual to prevent the spread of covid nineteen in these small courtrooms as well as in the hallways by it kind of goes against the spirit of the cdc eviction moratorium which was passed in early september which specifically was looking to prevent evictions because there are clear links between housing instability and covid nineteen right but what if anything did courts due to accommodate people who don't have reliable internet or have no internet access at all. It's not really clear what courts have done to to make this process more accessible and it's really a court by core and in some case judged by judge decision there have been courts that have said that they are making greater accommodations for people with disability. That are appearing that they are providing interpreters that if as a tenant that is appearing in these courts you have some issue you can email the court in advance and express these issues to them but all of that kind of assumes that there's the space lied access to technology which in a lot of cases just is not the case that was eileen grow a senior reporter at mit tech review many statewide eviction moratorium sephardi past and unless lawmakers extended the federal eviction.

Haunted Virtual Meetings

"Ibm researchers have found and disclosed vulnerability insists goes widely used webex video conferencing service. Ibm says it's a major user of webex itself which is why it looked into the code. The vulnerability amounts to the potential for hunting. Someone could join a meeting as a ghost on-scene among the participants but with full access to audio video chat and screen sharing capabilities. The ghost could remain in the form of an audio connection even after being detected and expelled and the ghost collect information on meeting. Attendees full names. Email addresses and ip addresses without even being admitted to the conference cisco has patched the vulnerability and users should apply the fix

Its time to talk about voting technology. No, not that kind of voting.

Its time to talk about voting technology. No, not that kind of voting.

"The pandemic has forced lawmakers around the world to get creative about passing legislation but in the us members of congress still have to show up to vote in person or have another member cast a proxy vote on their behalf but a report out last week by the house administration committee says congress could conduct remote voting if it wanted to securely and with existing technology beth. Simone novak studies the impact of technology on governing as a professor at new york. University's tannin school of engineering. She says remote voting is already happening in other countries and in several. Us states via apple or roll. Call by phone. You know when we have our voices or our faces that's the best form of authentication of who we are. It's no different in many ways as we've seen from all of us working online that we can simply of express our opinion out loud this on zoom the same way we do in real space. It's really not the technology so much. That's the issue at the technology exists for members of congress to securely vote remotely during the ongoing coronavirus epidemic and we've already seen lots of uses of zoom and other of videoconferencing technologies to allow for example committees to me and the business of lawmaking. Go on around the world to if the house administration committee says it safe and already available. Why the pushback. So we've seen over the course of the pandemic. there were a lot of people from both sides of the political aisle who were worried about turning congress into a museum but people felt that really. This went against tradition. This went against the way the people were used to doing things. Don't forget that from legislators used to doing business in the hallways and face to face doing zoom meeting or doing a webex or getting online to have a meeting that was completely new and in fact training was needed to get people used to the idea of having a committee meeting online then part of it. Frankly is party politics and just objecting for the sake of objecting. One of the advantages of virtual committee meetings that you've had more openness. It's been more accessible to people who may not be able to fly to washington to testify for example do you see voting also potentially increasing If you don't have to be there in person. So we've seen examples from around the world of legislatures who have seen their attendance rates and participation rates. Go way up not needing to miss a vote. Because they're in their home district or need to be a need to be somewhere else. So i think we definitely have seen instances of greater rates of participation. We've also seen the ability for for example committees to bring in witnesses from all over the world. Something very difficult today to do today during covid but even pre covid would have a hearing with a few witnesses who would usually come a potentially from where it's convenient near in the beltway area or the usual suspects. We have the ability to have much more diverse participation and more participation in hearings and. I think what's really exciting. Is those legislatures that are turning to technology not simply to do what they do offline but do it online it's those who are really using technology to innovate in new ways to do what i like to call crowd law in other words to use technology to engage the public in the legislative process. So we're seeing lots of examples of this kind of crowd law innovation taking advantage of new technology to hear from more people more diverse people and to engage ordinary people in a process. That's typically been done of really far away from them and often to much behind closed doors but lawmakers could have problems connecting to the internet right. I mean we've seen some government officials lose their connections during committee meetings. Is the infrastructure ready for this. We have to take some baby steps to ensure that we have backup plans in place right. That's why in brazil they have a system that both works with an app and with the telephone. So there's a backup plan. I've been a witness in a congressional hearing and the person who testified with me had to do so frankly from her car because it was the only place that she could get reliable connectivity we have the tools and techniques and the processes in place that can allow us to develop procedures that will work including with backup plans so that people can for example is they're doing in other countries vote maybe not during the hearing but afterwards so they have a window of time in which they can actually register their participation if they can't get online then well and a reminder of the stakes here which is you know if you have people talking in the halls and having having backroom meetings that's potentially spreading covid. Do you think there will be more pressure on the house to adopt to take this step. In the coming months i think with especially with a change in administration and a posture. That will be really much more proactive. In terms of things like mask mandates social distancing requirements and public health and safety measures. I think we're also going to see some a changing culture and when you keep in mind the fact that the average age of a senator is sixty three. The average age of a member of the house is fifty eight and again. The cove is rising all over the united states. I think we're going to see both the necessity of really instituting procedures that help keep people safe but also really a change in culture in really trying to demonstrate for the american people the right ways to work safely and to act safely and that's going to create pressure. I hope for greater uses of these technologies. Frankly it's not cova today. It could be a natural disaster tomorrow. We have to be prepared to continue operations of government even the event of a disaster. We don't wanna be without the ability to legislate to provide the american people with services that they need to provide them with their stimulus checks and importantly to conduct oversight over the executive branch Especially in a crisis you know. We have the world's arguably most powerful national legislature and it deserves to have a modern and safe digital infrastructure. Beth novak directs the governance lab at.

Many of your listeners might only in the security space by no lead us in the cloud access security broker space. Has there been a noticeable change in the adoption of ritualized security tools and services since covid nineteen has forced many organizations to really shift to a remote workforce. Oh absolutely we have seen a dramatic a noticeable change across the board In fact it's quite timely. We just came up with a Work from home. Cod report card stands for cloud Sorry clouded options security to vote. Maybe talk about the coalition between the increased use of cloud services and collaboration tools such as cisco webex zoom teams slack the covid nineteen pandemic along with an increase in cyber attacks targeting the cloud and public cloud environments impacting. What allies increased workloads. So it's really across the board and what v. seen right based upon customer data. What we've seen is a significant and potentially long lasting trends that include an increase in the use of a out services more than fifty percent but also access unmanaged devices that is what we call cloud native threats and this threat actors targeting clough fahd outweighs the this brought on by changes implied behavior. And it's very important that me are well equipped to be to mitigate this kind of risk and Tragedy impacting public structures for both competitors. And what's your life's work notes. Increasing instep with doubted option. All industries need to evaluate the security posture to protect against accomplish Data exultation definitely. I've definitely been talking about in. This episode is how organizations need to be shifting their focus to security for remote workforce indefinitely towards the cloud so on a longer time line. What else has really influenced the growth of ritualized. It security. i think a lot of factors lead the growth of Security watch well as asian in fact just yesterday reading that says that the global which was asian security market is expected to grow to two billion dollars by the end up twenty thirty four s pretty much growing at the annual compounded rate of a sixteen percent. These can be activated Blue growth of cloud and the journey that all organizations have embarked on as you know i. I follow nemec donald Back now analysts. And in one of block specifically saying as data centers are increasingly which lies used a becoming more and more mobile organizations increasing adopt public cloud services security controls must shed.

The which means to godless the future of information security is a set of all context of software based security policy enforcement. Points can be pleased when and where needed within what lies on a containerized computing architecture. Second part of it is it security selflessly imagining except right. Think about this and the security team with an organization looks like it's developers de moving to a more What allies denies Based architecture they don't want to behind so they want there's security for these new sets of workloads to be containerized As well and At end of the day that is immense benefit right they think about security utility the want to able to be agile and be able to react little the next shock to the system as quickly as possible.

If i'm on prem why should i go use cast yeah great question so as you know as well as empty does report on premise install base solutions for unified communications. Lets what we're seeing in. The natural transition over the past few years not just driven via the pandemic was to move to op ex model right and get out of the business in the operational overhead of managing those large complex systems that also requires specialized skill sets. There's a lot of value in consolidating your platform that results in cost savings and extended our ally giving their users the flexibility that they need depending on the services that they require most of the has platforms out there today. Native integrations and plug into pretty much anything. Right and at the end of the day provide a unified experiences to the end user population.

Thanks so snp as a couple of wonderful offerings for our customers right now when it comes to uk's with the freedom of choice they're looking for organizations that still have premise based system. We have a wonderful engagement with regards to assessing where they currently are in their unified communications journey and what it will take to get them to the cloud for organizations that are leveraging multiple platforms. We have a journey map that will also allow them to consolidate to one platform cisco has two offerings right now. One being webex going and the other. Ucla cloud that has an incredible package. Bundle that we work hand in hand with cisco to develop that includes a fully installed fully managed offering by smp that includes pstn services and also allows you to conform with the latest in. I'm on one regulatory complaints. Sean i wanna thank you for joining me today and doing this. First of a five part series. I you cast in all the aspects of you.

ICYMI: Zoom alternatives

"Spent the week looking at zoom alternatives. This was in response to what happened on Monday when Zoom went out for three and a half hours causing all those remote workers and all those students on their first day of school to start screaming what am I gonNa do what am I going to do? Well, there are several alternatives out there I don't think any of them are is easy to use in as smooth as as zoom, but if it ain't workin. Let's look at some of the other ones Google meet Webex skype Microsoft teams, facebook messenger rooms, gotomeeting whereby discord and Gypsy. Let's start with Google meat. That's the most heavily advertised. Google. Is really pushing it hard. It's kind of a bare bones, but it works APP it'll do you find the features are not there in meat like are in zoom for the best feature though is this automatic transcription feature which sounds pretty cool until you ask Google if you could save the transcripts and they say, no, you can't nor can they translate? Google will one day get their act together. Well, that's from Cisco is the best all around alternative it was originally a APP, the charge you money. Now, you can get a free version for. Beatings up to an hour after that, you have to start paying it has all the tools you want. It's pretty simple to use. So I really liked that one suggested check it out skype is the granddaddy. It's the one that started all always been confusing hard get people to connect with you on skype unless they have the APP and you have the APP and they you have to approve them and it's like the fate facebook buddy system where you have to welcome them in. Once they're welcome in it's great but the the the snag is connecting. Microsoft teams is built for corporations for enterprises and If you work at a company everybody in the company has Microsoft teams and since notes back and forth to each other video is sort of an afterthought. It works best if it's someone in your organization Facebook Messenger Rooms, this is facebook's zoom killer I don't think. So the idea is pretty good. You can have a private conversation with as many people as you want to have it with. But by fault that conversation goes to your news feed for everyone to see and everyone to join in, you're going to have to tweak some stuff in there to get it. To be private I'll skip that one goto meeting against solid. It's free for up to three participants that may not be enough for you whereby is very interesting. It's Norwegian company It's really best for one to one chats. The free version will only let you chat with up to four people. After that, you'll have to pay ten dollars a month, but overall I really liked it and sharing was really easy it's worth checking out discord is really aimed at gamers. They would like other people to start using it they. They say it's good for Yoga classes in school clubs, but there's been a lot of heat of. On on the service so I would I would use one of the other ones. Finally Gypsy. This is nerd paradise it's open source it's totally free. But it's so nerdy that if you WANNA, record your meeting they say great go to a live stream on youtube and then you can watch it there. That's not for me I'll stick with zoom again the all around. Best APP, when it works and if it doesn't work, I'm probably going for Webex.

"And how a layoff. New Jersey Man is making generous use of his time. We'll have that story in about 20 minutes. Popular zoom video meeting. APP went out recently on the first day of school for many people and users freaked out. With stay at home remote work and learning the new norm. Now during this pandemic, What were people supposed to Dio Jefferson? Grandma Yusa today took a look at Plan B options to zoom Jeff, What did you find so the one that is putting the most heat on Zuma's Google meat? Which sort of Google was initially hoping that people would pay for And then when the pandemics came up, they they let it up. They let people have it for free. And its bare bones compared to zoom. It will connect you, but it's got some of the Google craziness. The thing that drove Jobe insane was that you can have your meeting caption, basically meaning you could have a transcript of our call right now. Which is fantastic. I would love it. You would love it. And then you say OK, Google can I am Can I download it? I can't download the transcript. They said no, You can't do that. What? Uh, no reason. Well, hey, Could I, uh, could I use your transcript feature as a translation feature, so that if I was talking to somebody from another country that they could understand what I was saying, No. So you can't do that Get this is Google that is the king of Translation Have I mean everybody loves their translation app, So that drove me nuts, and there's also a lot of features, they say are coming soon meet is free through September 30th, and then it's going. It will still have a free version, but they're going to be pushing people to do the paid version. The other one that's up in the top. 10 is Microsoft teams, which really isn't app aimed at businesses to have communication among their workers. You Khun do video meetings there. You could also do meetings with people outside the organization. But it's glitchy. It's tough. The help section is really hard to understand. If most people that use teams do it because they're company has decided that they have to use teams. Okay, So my favorite of the alternatives If you doctor to use Zoom is WebEx WebEx also has a free version. It's Francisco. They'll letyou talk up to an hour for free there. There's a paid version that will try to get you to do more more tools. Primarily recording your meeting to the cloud. You can report it to your computer. I think it's you know, it's a really good go to one from a company that is established. It's their Cisco. You know, I put my trust in them and then the other one, of course, is Skype. So Skype is, though, is the The app that started it. All People were talking to their kids in other countries and Skype is a little hard to connect to you. You know, if I want to connect to you, Gordon, I have to invite you and then you have to accept my invitation as supposed to be just saying, Hey, let's let's do Skype. Here's the length. Now That's how it worked before. There is a process where you can send people link on and I did a test with that. On one computer. It was an older computer and My brother couldn't see me. But I knew our computer he could. I think if you're if you're connected to somebody, Skype is fantastic. It's really good audio, but overall zoom is just the easiest thing to use right? Speaking with Jeff Graham, personal technology columnist at Yusa today, also host of a podcast called Talking Tech. His pieces called It zooms Out. What about WebEx? Google Meat or Skype? We tried them all. Here's what we found. All right. So over some of the other takeaways because, really, for most people, I guess at this point we're looking at Plan B with some of these right cause Plan B is all the oxygen right now is you should have, you know, practice with one of the other ones and have it ready in case it doesn't work. That's what I always do, you know? Ah, Ah, hangouts isn't working. Well, go to Skype. Skype isn't working. Well, go to facetime. You know, you just have have your backups had be signed in register. You confirm that it will work and have it. They're certainly the schools should have a bathroom. If you're teaching and resumes, not working. You better have a pretty good backup. Thanks, Jeff Jefferson Grim. Personal technology reporter at Yusa today, also host of a podcast called Talking Tech 21 minutes now in front of the hour on this weekend.

How do you sell 5G in the middle of a pandemic?

How do you sell 5G in the middle of a pandemic?

"The last five months, the crow virus has shut down. The economy is kept many of us, stuck at home. Adding the fact that millions of people outta jobs disposable income is what it used to be. Years from Verizon's perspective. How do you sell five G. Environment? This is a technology that spoke promises to give you a high speed connection on the go. All of us aren't on the go anymore Where is the benefit of five g? You know it's it's it's an interesting. Question because you know we'd plan plan planned, and then all of a sudden nobody saw this come in and it's different but so there's some downsides to it but then there's also some upsides to it as well. I we have not seen. The demand for a fixed wireless access product like we are right now and you know we've we've been limited in what we can do from a forty perspective. With respect to fixed wireless access just because Waco talking about before Kinda bandwidth limitations. You know now is we put more band without they report millimeter wave out there that'll open up some some potential for more fixed wireless access tied. Products that we can offer to people you know, and that's GonNa come in Handy for for people you know especially in the covid environment if they're working from home, they can't go to get a good broadband connection. You can use wireless for you know underserved underprivileged folks we can use my fi and people can get on the on on websites or do their schoolwork. So we think there's a good opportunity They are some of the sales folks told me if I if I had blanket coverage millimeter wave everywhere they really be crushing it with fixed pilots access. Fisher be able to get gigabits of service on on a on a laptop wirelessly. Would you typically do at home with a normal Internet connection? So so we see we see opportunity there on the other side of it. You know we've put in some. You know in stadiums, we put some five G. millimeter wave deployments around the country We really showed it off at super bowl the capabilities there. But largely the those stadiums they're empty right now. So but we do believe that the people come back there and we're working. We're still working on the use cases in things that can really augment. People's experiences when they do return to stadiums. while. That's a good point I mean there are you have the pieces in place to make this work when society goes back normal? Problem is we don't really know when that will actually happen. And know curious to see what is what demand looks like right now, four five devices I know the element, some folks WanNA feature proof themselves won't be ready five G. What it's. Broadly available go out again but there's also the other element that folks are watching what they're spending a lot more right now there's a lot of uncertainty out there and so what are you seeing in terms of customer demand? You know I think there's maybe a better question at Ronin are are the CEO who runs our or consumer division can answer. But I I know for sure he's he sees good demand for five G.. Devices. I believe there's a staff that we've. We've sold the the most five G. Devices and I do think it's it's people probably early adopters people want to see the first. The first of its kind and. The promise we have to those folks as we continue to grow the network new capabilities will come on and as they do you'll be you'll start avail yourself of those no Serbs this and we're working closely with the application developer ecosystem so that they're developing things that will be able to leverage the what we call the currencies, really the capabilities if you will of what five G. Networks will bank. So we continue on we don't believe cove this last forever. And you know. But there's also other opportunities that we see that could five G. can help move. For example factories you know if you get more automation factories, you get a good millimeter way five G. system in. That is much more robust than safe current system. You may be able to do things more efficiently in in a factory. So those are those are things will work with customs on right now, that's a good segue because I know five G. isn't just about higher speech your phone, there is a lot more to five G.. I'm curious what you think the applications are five that specifically would help alleviate some of the issues we're having right now other telemedicine whether it's remote worker. What are some of the opportunities I know you talked about home broadband as one option but where some of the other opportunities out there? Yeah. I mean there's some the opportu while it's funny. So we you know we both ever landline network in wireless network and Bailey we're talking about wireless ear but on the landline side net to some extent on the wireless side, we've been monitoring every day I look at how what normal was before our networks are being. Utilized in wear geographically spread and looking at applications and so so what's happening gaming is huge game the growth of gaming like skyrocketed. It's actually come down a little bit because I think people figured out how to work from home. Initially, it was probably a little bit of a honeymoon period therapy were probably play more games we seem to come down, but it's still way high video applications now, everybody. Now, if you go back before pandemic, sure I knew how to use a Webex and maybe one other now I know like five different video things and video is going to be I think very important. In the future of five G. Because you're going to bring in things like Ar Vr. And Computer Vision Technology and you know. L. Type scenario so you can use computer vision to do different things. All of these kind of things require really. Snappy fast interfaces and really low latency. Scenarios all of which what five jails are wide brand band can bring people. Specific example you talked about telehealth I think that's we think there's going to be that's going to grow a lot I think just by virtue of people don't WanNa go to a doctor. people volve figure out ways to do things at home working right now with a firm that is using five G. along with our MAC. That we just announced they ws so they're able to really do edge computing and some. Run machine learning models out at the EDGE TO GET REAL TIME results. An an operating room. So with polyps and stuff, it makes it much easier for for these folks to operate 'cause right now, what they do is they have large server farms running these models in their hospitals that's costly. They break maintaining him as tough. If you could take all of that away, you can run these things in the cloud more effectively. That's good for everybody so good for the patients go to the hospital and. Moves things along. So it's it's really things like that. Like you said, if we just make this a snappier phone, that's that's really not what we're going for. We're going for one or new inputs, interfaces new experiences had you make things more efficient and it goes across the whole board of the economy we feel. So I'm really excited to see how this evolves and what. People will use these currencies, capabilities, new and stuff, and I can't wait to.

"Okay. So every single day, the very, very good for to the honor and the privilege to work with a lot of people. I think last week ahead eighteen nineteen appointments on my calendar Chat with folks all of the world. Personal Development Business building all kinds of cool things that we do. But you it always comes down to one thing. Now. Nobody ever wants to hear this it I if I do podcasts on productivity like I am today everybody wants to hear that. But when they call him for coaching, they don't want that they want to strategy an idea on Scott. Tell me what to do. Let's go go go go. I should just finally start with productivity because they always get back around see. Here's what happens. They come, they want the to get the roadmap ready to go. Got Too excited it to make it happen. Then Scott, I couldn't do it. I ran out of time I don't know what happened. I. Guess I should work on my productivity I'm like yeah okay. So I know this now I think starting today every single client who comes in the door is GonNa Start Productivity I can make sure we can get the work done make the space right? So the here's what happens. The day runs out and you have so many to choose on your list and do you get to the into your day and you still have a lot of to do's and they're probably pretty the probably growing rapidly like rabbits. And they are for a couple of reasons. One major reason is people keep them on a computer with recurring events these days they just keep adding up you never get rid of him until the day you die and I'm not sure they stop after that somebody has to clean her mass, right? But getting what you want life. Is often blocked by simple habits that are getting in your way now there to that everybody misses let's rush through these because there is one that's vitally important I'll do it afterwards you gotta wait we got to build the foundation here. Okay. Number One the first super productivity super charger is to understand the tomorrow. Begins Today. So it's ten o'clock in the morning today on a Monday and you're you're in your day you here you go. If you take a few minutes today to look at tomorrow and think about it it's GonNa Change. Your world. Aspects that sounds like something I already. Do I know I know but we have to get to the other two before you're really gonNA understand what to do with that. But if you just take off racing through your week into never about what's coming up the next day and what you're, GonNa do with it. It's just going to go crazy you're going to get dragged around. Athens doesn't it? So, planning ahead, really vital to setting path to use desired outcome the next day. So what happens next you get out of bed you're ready to go. You got your morning thing happened, right? You'RE GONNA sit down you're gonNA. Ground Yourself. Before you get too busy. Take just a few minutes. I don't care if you got the office walk in the office and the very first thing you do. Is Look at your machine in front of you. You're a piece of paper whatever it is and go ah gay here I am. I know. I. Thought About this yesterday. But now let me look at today's plan again. and. I want you to reaffirm was to be done. Reaffirm. Sorry my voice crack didn't. reaffirmed. What has to be done today now you did it yesterday. Now you're GonNa do it today and I want you to kind of look at it from this angle what must be done today if you didn't get these things done today, we really bad these have to happen everything else can kind of be off to the side. This is one of the things that I talked to clients. I tell them listen you're only going to get three to. Six things done a day I usually three big deal she I might do a thousand things, but there's only three important things are going to happen today. That's it. Maybe a phone call email talk to somebody whatever it's going to be is only three. If you look at your day today and say, there are three things that have to happen today if they don't world's not going to have to delegate it to somebody else that's all there is to it. If you do that today and then take breath and hang on for the ride and get through it and stay true to yourself all day. You will be amazed what happens. Now we know we've looked at it the day before, and then we got up in the morning we grounded herself We thought about it. Okay. This is what I'm going to do but you know what? I'm just going to go up and it's GonNa fall apart again I know it's going to happen and is why is that? Why can't I I'M SMART I know this I've listened to eight, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two podcasts I read the Book David Allen. I can't understand this complicated system and it seems like it should work for me to buy you do. All right. You're right Scott train today. So come on I'll tell you what to do. So here's the thing. Here's a Scott logic kicking right some people call it common sense. I don't think it's a little bit different. See I just one day reasons something. Scott Logic, told me this? There are what I call non optional activities that take place throughout the course of a day. and. It takes up way more time than you think. Not optionals like taking care of personal needs eating drinking sleeping, taking a shower shaving and the other things that people say in those rhymes about would you do in the morning? How about commuting in a car if you're still commuting. How about not being able to get on a log on zoom call or a a Webex thing is messing with you how much somebody walking your office. If you still have an office in bothering your for a few minutes, they won't do their job they're having you do their job. How does somebody calling her texting e-mailing you all day long this stuff. Happens doesn't it? How about the kids needing some help? How maybe you didn't sleep last night and your little tired today album maybe you're on a diet and you don't have as much energy as you wanted to have how about maybe have a warrior about some money maybe you can't pay your mortgage next month a lot of that going on right now. Out these little things that are going on, do you think possibly these things will ever go away in your life? Now. It's naive if you think it is I'm sorry Scott Logic says, oh, come on be nice to them. They could go way not really there's always going to be non optionals. These are GONNA be pop up events they're gonNA come on your life some of listen you know you have to eat every day you know you should be exercising. You know things are GonNa happen I am not telling you anything that you don't already know you already know it. So why in God I'm sorry I shouldn't say why would you even think about? Getting. Up and doing planner and do a schedule. I can get through my day without any of these not options you can for about three hours and you're going to to go pee. It's GonNa take your time.

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress

"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

"In you know co mingling with work devices and non work devices, and we've actually asked the question. How do we make sure that we're secure? And it sounds like secure can really have that visibility see if there's any potential threat, see what's happening across all of those devices in the unknown and and putting that the edge is now everywhere. The edge used to. To be able was a you know your mode and you could control it, and now it's really really everywhere, so it's really awesome to hear what Cisco's doing. Around secure action can't wait to hear more. That comes out of that as that solution develops, The next thing I wanted to turn to is what I mentioned in the intro about powering an inclusive future for all and I I do think one thing that the pandemic has certainly given us the opportunity to do is everyone has an even playing field. They can attend all of these events. Maybe they couldn't travel to before they can hear people speak. Speak that they never would have been able to go and see before. Learn things without having to go to a building. There's a lot of conversation around accessibility, not only for the remote worker, but also the distance learner as well being able to have the tools that they need to operate in front of a screen, and so, what were some of the announcements around accessibility that Cisco came out with at Cisco live so I thought one of the biggest changes are one of the biggest things for accessibility was actually the additions to and upgrades to announce around CISCO'S WEBEX and Webex and the ad on set. They're. They're going to bring the artificial intelligence the ability to say hey, Webex and ask it to start taking transcription or hey, Webex make a note of this or hey. Webex create a calendar event or hey, Webex mark this spot. So what that's going to do, and also the ability for the integrations that they're talking about that Webex is going to have into other applications. Maybe right now I've got integrations for Webex into my outlook calendar where I could schedule a calendar, invite directly, and had webex there, but when I'm done. What is that going to do well? It could allow me to actually have a transcript. It could allow me to have it create a to do list and other things that will come straight out of there, and if we see how this will work the automation and the API piece of that the program ability, and the automation pieces will lead us. Actually start actioning on this so when I've created a transcript, I could have that, Oughta magically sent to other people or dated dumped into a crm for customer. Maybe it goes right into their sales for system or whatever other CRM system. Maybe they WANNA have. Have tied to a ticket. If a customer is using it for a support desk and call center they could have. That dropped right into service now automatically tied to that ticket when they've closed that out so then you could either have the recording, but you could also have what was said there. So that's pretty important. It's going to help people because I. know the one of the things that happens once. You've seen all this going on. You lose track of all that data because you have so many other pieces of. Of data that we're seeing today. We're actually having a lot of information overload because we've got visual, we've audio and we've also got what's going on our screen and a computer program of any sort as also going to pivot a little bit more from just the technology, the solutions the products, but also wear Cisco has been heading also, but I continue to see the march more firmly in that direction is opening the gateways for learning about program ability. They've got a great program. This was probably the number two in my. My list of things that I saw that I've been watching for several years, but it certainly has gotten my attention more so now, certainly based on what's just happened to world. Is there providing of free platform for learning about programming? So they call it definite. You haven't heard it. I would definitely have not heard of it I would recommend taking a look at it. The platform really can start you from I. Don't know what edible is I don't know what python is I. Don't what Ruby is they take you from. Zero and can get started up this path, and and get you introduced to these platforms in so it's an opportunity for anyone starting their career to start there, I in fact myself. I'm taking small steps as well back onto. That journey, because it's better while since I've actually played at the command line or tried to write a script, right things and I'm like you know it's time for me to improve my skills as well and so I've been playing with it recently, and I've been very impressed with the platform in. You'll notice. Many of these events Cisco is talking about for the network operator, the network engineer to start to learn and understand this technology because networks are going to be programmed. They're not going to be button and they're not gonNA. Command line that those days are over so so understanding how applications operate in how you build an application understanding that is going to be critical going forward industry and I think that is a bit of a democratization that's going on in the industry where. If I don't like something I can write my own code or I can Farro Code and write my own little patch or fixed something that's causing me problem or havoc on in my environment. I think about all the steps that go along with that, and that's really I. do woodworking as a hobby and I often use this as an illustration is that? If I'm going to do something once, that's fine. I can create a one time thing, but if I'm going to repeat that process more than three times I'm GonNa make a template forward so that I can repeat that, and that's what really this program. Program ability is all about so if you're gonNA, do an operation or you're gonNA. Do something with and say we know our customers are creating firewall rules, or they're creating policies around network security, and they do this day in and day out every day hundreds of times in some cases well, wouldn't they go ahead and take the steps to create a small API driven script program excetera to do this for them? And then have it automated so that they may drop a little bit of basic information in there, but the whole thing is smooth and data driven instead of human error in human prone where we've got possibilities for for putting in the wrong code. Now, that's really it's really cool when I think about accessibility I don't always think that far I think about you know more of what you were saying. Jonathan with the DA, I- capabilities, but being able to build a sort of a platform playground to start teaching and educating and having people be a part of the development of the future of platforms is is really really cool. You know we've covered A. A lot of some of the major highlights of course accessibility secure acts, really what is happening with definite. They covered any other last thoughts around or highlights that you really pulled from the live event or thoughts about what is coming for the I can't believe the years half over, but what's coming for the remainder of twenty twenty for cisco, and maybe a sneak preview in your opinion of of what we're. We're going to see in two thousand twenty one, so I would say the thing that more so continues. It's pretty much the same chant. The same song more infrastructure is going to be cloud based. The security is actually a cloud based platform I expect more technology. CISCO IS GONNA launch is all going to be cloud based ill. Look at umbrella. You look at the duo, which are some of their other. Other security platforms those are cloud based in you, actually gain more horsepower by leveraging cloud infrastructure, and you take away a lot of pain of trying to manage infrastructure on your on premise, so I think that is going to continue to be the march. We see coming out of CISCO. There's plenty of other technologies that they're. They're hedging their bets with, but.

"What are the strengths of each of the major web conferencing platforms? Microsoft teams Webex Zoom Google meet skype. Thank you, Dave. Well our pleasure and do the core functionality is the same audio video usually dial in number for the person that wants to sound like they're calling from the engine room of turn of the century, steam powered ship screen sharing some recording capability usually. Usually with some cloud storage. The each offer small enhancements over that in some way for example zoom transcribes meetings, so you can kind of guess. What was Ed from the less than stellar transcription Microsoft teams focuses on easy collaboration on office DOC. You would think he would figure that right Google. Meet gets shoved in your face. By Google had every possible moment, but we can call that. The fact that it integrates with the Google ecosystem mainly by annoying you. Webex seems to be mostly regulated too big slow moving corporate giants that haven't moved away from it yet. skype is largely abandoned when the interface changed, and it became heavy and cumbersome to use. We don't like it. Really though the only thing that sets them apart in any truly significant way is that whatever company you work for got a good bulk deal and decided to go with that one, so you use them instead of the others. They're all pretty much interchangeable and we're never. We've never heard anyone say oh, this isn't exit doesn't have feature why they basically have all the same features. Now. Of course, we got some research. Help with this from H on our team. Who says he uses zoom for calls? With clients Webex calls organized by a particular client Google hangouts in meets for internal planning calls with more than twenty to thirty members slack for interesting calls. All of those about weekly, plus whereby for internal life, incident, calls with the tech OPS team. He also uses Microsoft teams about once or twice a year. He says we're the ones like bluejeans. Almost never skype. Literally never he also uses to Webinar, for webinars that are more generic than trainings says they're all interchangeable. We'll have all of those details. Including H is horatio working with us out of New York, his suggestions, and the other stuff that Khorasan I mentioned for you at into tomorrow dot. com, look for our three for the show for June twelfth two thousand.

"So here's it's super super easy as as the person who is running this meeting. It is super easy to stop that from happening when you are. If you're using Internet explorer like I am you go up to the top of the screen where your menu bar is and you just click participants and in the drop down box. You are going to see two things entry and exit tone. You want to unpack and mute. All you want to check. Oh and a lot of bonus mute upon entry so as soon as someone logs into your meeting they are automatically muted so mute mute on entry and entry and exit. Tone off is what you need to remember. I have one word for that match ups right so rob. You might be asking me the question Etan. If I'm mute. Everybody and I ask a question. How can they answer me? So when you're done you just hit not. Even people can UN mute themselves whether you go all right. You can mute all. And then as they go in one. Answer you'll see the the microphones clicking off so that they can talk so in my experience people have been able to UN mute themselves on Webex. Now there's a lock though somehow so that no matter in then that's where that's where you're why you don't use maybe a personal realm if you if you need the audience muted and you are not allowing an opportunity for them to talk. That's where you can use more of the enterprise licensing and run an actual event Which mutes all you can have moderators. You can have hosts to make sure that you more. Yeah so that's where if you're running not a even my Friday morning meeting at no one really talks besides may but I always have the option for them to UN mute themselves and talk if they want to but if you were running a presentation to customers or partners or things like that and you didn't want the audience to be able to speak But you wanted to make sure you didn't you your co hosts or your other moderators than do that through an events Setup license And you'll have much better luck so again we're talking about the personal meeting aspects For this conversation even still if you have everyone muted and this is what I take full advantage of on my Friday. Webcast is a used the chat we are chatting again. How many different things do we have? Webex teams slacks Microsoft teams. There's a million chat applications out there that everyone's used to using People also taxed constantly. It's a natural function for them. So if you ask a question asked them to chat the answer to you and within Webex. There's just a on the same screen. They're shortcut screen. You see like microphone audio all of your options. And then there's a little chat icon. You can just put in the chat you know. Let me know how you're feeling today or let me know what you're thinking of this idea. And then people can either reply to everyone or they can reply privately to you Even in your own meeting people can have private conversations with other attendees that no one else can see. But that and I I would say for Webex. The chat function is so underutilized. When you are doing any sort of presentation because the thing I hate the absolute most is when you're listening to a presentation in someone says. Does anybody have any questions? Yeah you just experienced uncomfortable. Silence that we all expect so use the chat. Say at the at the top of the meeting. You know like you start chatting if the host starts chatting. I everyone else will start chatting along with them so as a host of meeting if you have content to share if you want to share a link if you read something If you're referring to something you wanNA share a podcast on connection experience. Put all of that into the chat box and that encourages participants to also use the chat. You can't just expect them to go and chat on their own and no it's there without introducing it to them and showing them that you're using it as a tool as well in the private chatsworth good to so if you go into like tile mode you'll see a little chat bubble that's on the the pictures themselves and you can click onto that and into a private chat with that particular person if you. WanNa say up you. Have you know a pen smudge on your faced in your video? You might want respond back. Thank you So the the last thing I'll say in terms of How to collaborate with your audience you've made made it so they can all talk after using chats another great feature again way underutilized in Webex. Because I am not cheating my own horn but I've been on a lot of web access over the past four years. I am the only person that has ever used opole in. Webex out of all of the webex meetings I've ever attended and I don't think a lot of people even know it's there so I actually started using the polling feature just to get an idea of how many people from each of our segments were attending and it started with you know who's your sales director and then it went to what division do you sit in. Are you a partner or distributor so allowing my audience? To first of all I can immediately see how many people are in. 'cause it's Kinda hard to get account when you're hosting a meeting you just the all the names now for about a quarter. Starting a poll will immediately show me. How many people are there? How many people have answered the poll? And how many people are still in progress of answering the poll? And there's tons of different ways. You can do a multiple choice you can do on single one answer or does multiple choice. But they can choose one answer. They can choose multiple answers. You can have short-form answers. So they can type in their own. And so there's a lot of it's basic but a lot of flexibility to it so the questions I ask are what division are you from. Did you sell any of ex? Wires Z this week and then whatever might topic is for the day. I usually add two to three questions relating to the topic just to have them start thinking about what? I'm going to be presenting on so there in that right frame of mind before I start my S- my segment so Pops up when they when they join. Is that correct? Something out can send out ahead of time. Is that a no pops up with like. I have to start the poll once the meeting starts so and I have I've done so many like I started them February first of two thousand nineteen. So I've been doing it every Friday for over a year so I have different. Polls that are saved like my standard one and then some different fun ones that I can pull from as templates and just revise But it it starts as soon as they join and this Very important because only people that are joined from a browser or desktop application will have visibility to the poll. People obviously just calling in and aren't view having a a screen. Viewing experience won't be able to answer any of your poll question so just a good note there but polls also really help with Not only after the fact information but to tell who's actually paying attention Because if you have one hundred ninety eight people in your realm and only sixty people answer a poll that showing you that you have a real participation problem because they're not engaged in what you're saying or what you're content is I won't say I have that problem. No no I usually. I usually have thirty people out of one hundred and sixty that. Don't answer a poll but probably because those people are dialing in and have a call news ninety six along with their name. So that is. It's that's how easy it is like. Pick a browser use your personal room. Pick a browser that has the best functionality for me it's Internet explorer Make sure the meeting is set up correctly before your start dialing in by turning off entry and exit tones meeting upon entry. And then muting all lines engage your people in the chat box share links and information that you're talking about and then have a poll that can help catalogue your attendees by You. Know what kind of participant. They are Preview the content with them in that poll and then you can download and share those poll results afterwards or. Just have them for yourself. But I I do that every single week and like I said I've tried other platforms and keep coming back to to Cisco Webex just because it is so utilitarian and easy for people to log in enjoy and participate..

"So different browsers are going to give you a different experience. I'll give you a a really good example. I use an you know. Shoot me if you want to use tried and true Internet explorer for my Webex experienced There it works. Fine in chrome But you do need a chrome. The chrome extension an order to get all of the functionality. That I'm GonNa talk about in tips and tricks so in chrome if you're just opening it up in a chrome browser you're hosting a meeting and you want to mute. People are off like the most irritating thing when people are joining a meeting. And You keep hearing beep. Beep beep beep That is a surefire way to ruin meeting. Because then you know who's showing up fifteen minutes late and WHO's leaving fifteen minutes early so in like in the chrome browser are those functions are there but I have actually found. They don't stick. Um So. I think. Chrome Browser is a little bit of a Beta. So you need the extension in order to get full functionality. Which is why I just go through another explore. Not to mention to that when you are a meeting and you know. Those things are coming through is very disruptive for you and your von process tubes. It's GonNa interrupt that can like using using edge. I don't notice to too much different but I'll be honest. I'm not a huge edge fan altogether so call me old school but until Internet explorer officially dies it is my most of the time browser of choice for Webex we cannot say is the desktop application as well But I think for mobile users and people who are running on multiple things at a time sometimes the browser is just easier and it opens up automatically so browsers matter know that. If you're going to be in chrome you need to download the chrome extension For Webex Or you can just use Internet explorer and get all these great functions and features that. I'm about to talk about right at your fingertips so meeting set up if you're using outlook or whatever you know. G. Suite whatever platform you're using really easy to just copy and paste your personal meeting room as your meeting space in the invite and if you have an outlet. I'm GonNa tell you the difference between using your personal Rome and versus using your your ad in in outlook where it says Robbie no one you go and cheer email and you can see at Webex and then it just populates all of that information. What's always do it so you can. And so this again. This is not a Cisco sponsored webex Pennies Personal Webex. Use podcast Here's what I find the difference between using that Adan to Outta a webex versus using your personal room is I have much better when people log into a Webex and we want them to be on video and we want to make sure that they're if they're not dialing in through their computers and they're using a headset or dialing in. We want to have the best possible way for them to connect Their phone with their log in on Webex. So when you log in it will say rob McIntosh and then if you pick up your phone you need to dial a number put a pass code and then your participant. Id number right and that links you your name with your browser with your phone. Dial in and then that's considered a success. What happens when you use the AD in and you put it into the invite is it puts the phone number it puts the meeting. Invite there's no participant. Id and then there's the button to join and more often than not. It will take a little bit longer for you to join in the. Webex than it will take for you to dial. So you're you're dialing your phone while you're connecting through your browser and you put in your pass code and then it asks for your participant. Id but you're not yet in the meeting on your browser to grab your ID which means you now have a dial in a Colin user number thirty six and rob back in Tosh. So you're taking up two spots on that Webex why I use my personal realm is you. Don't have any of that information in the meeting. They have to open up the browser or the desktop application and then use the dial on instructions there with the participant. Id Right there. So just so those that are going to remain old school in their old workflow because for them to go in and try to find their personal room because it's not medically attached to outlook. Unless there's some kind of preference that you to do that is there. Is there a preference that will so when you have your wetbacks that's up on the outlook? Is there a way? So that you can Pull it down. So you're picking your personal room or do you actually have to go through the. Oh that's a good question. I think it I think it generates a new code for a Webex because it says do not add change or delete below this line and it doesn't create it until you send it So I don't I don't if at all have someone at Cisco because I'm not one hundred percent sure I usually just. I have my personal room like I haven't memorized but I also have the the Webex. Desktop APP can just copy it and paste it into the email and then that that's all they need but we should find out and if not we should suggest that suggests that feature the outlook at an and then so those that are not going to use their personal room. Still do it the other way. I guess the suggestion would be is make sure that your participants know they. They need to open up the Webex first half of the CAT managing. You're managing humans. That's a bad time fantastic. Yeah that's the way. I personally like why I like to use my personal room and especially now like I think it in another time. Maybe this wasn't as important. But what it where? Everyone's dialing in with their videos on if you dial in with your video on and you are like that's it's recognizing you through a browser and then you dial in with your phone. And it's not linked to your your name when you talk it's not gonNA show your video. It's GonNa show that Colin User. Ninety six talking not rob macintoshes talking so it it's bad for for people that are participating and you're there talking to them or you're contributing to the conversation you're actually making it one year taking up an extra seat so my personal room has two hundred seats and if I have a one hundred people going into the the meeting and then calling in. I've got people taking up two seats per person. And then that's no good and then we also talked about the the metrics. So if you're somebody who really kind of wants at the end of the year see how many meetings you participated in or how many participate in your meeting it's GonNa throw those metrics could be doubling in that make you look at but you didn't actually talk to that many people. Okay so that getting the you know what browser you're going to prefer to use how to pick which meeting space you're gonNA use personal or automated through outlook at an and now we get to actually setting making a good user experience so those two things were for your own personal experience. Now how do we make it better for people that are dialing it whether they did it right or not two things? I already mentioned. That are the two things that are really annoying and getting ruin video conference or any sort of online meeting is those beeps of entering and exiting and then the second one is people who are not muting their lines. I heard the best comparison the other day in this couldn't be more perfect. More perfect time to share it. They said that in the Times wherein right now not muting. Your line is the equivalent to accidentally replying all that. So you do like we. You hear it all the time like when a meeting starts and you have people in the background you hear people say can have can never understood me a favor in your lines. Well if they're doing the dishes talking to their dog and carrying on another conversation and not listening to you. They're not going to hear you. Tell them to mute. It just is what it is so we got the full instructions on how to make Chili on on a meeting. The other day somebody reminded. Excuse me you're not on mute. Oh my and then of course then. The conversation proceeds to everybody wants to be so very funny but to your we should like. We should do like a a listener submission. Like what's the worst thing you've heard when someone wasn't on Mute I've heard a number.

"Nine percent of companies have multiple video conferencing platforms or just general conferencing and we are no exception. I think the last time we talked we between the two of US. We had four different to create a video conference. So that alone I think creates a little bit of confusion for people Because if you look back if we kind of go back to. We had done an episode awhile ago about about adoption. Actually I think it was in our first podcast. We did with Lane and Jamal when sort of we were at the turning point of our new normal here where companies have had things like Webex and Microsoft teams and all of these other platforms in their environment but it was based on whoever wanted to adopt it and whoever wanted to use it there was really no need for it and no push to get people on platforms and so here we are today. Where now your workforce has to adopt all these platforms and high percentage of your employees. Have no idea what they're doing A host or a participant. So I do think we've mentioned it before. Rob Host a Webex every single Friday for our sales teams from our business solutions public sector. Um Federal and even our enterprise team is welcome to join as well and I have bounced around to different platforms. Unusually always find my way back to Cisco so this is not a paid. Podcast is truly my personal experience of using Cisco a that's why would classify you as a power user and it's important to learn from power users because they know that is an you know. I'll say one thing I will say is you know. Cisco is very Webex Tila -Tarian so It's very basic. It is easy to once you know where everything is. It's really easy to navigate it. There are some other platforms out there. Like I did see a really cool feature and I think rob you showed this to me on teams where you can blur out your background and I thought that was really cool. And I've been seeing zoom where you can like. I saw someone turn themselves into a potato and a potato field and I thought it was really cool and all of those features are really cool. But it doesn't always guarantee that is the best experience and maybe it is but it because it's all about how you run a meeting. So here's I'm going to go over what I do every single Friday and hopefully share some of my knowledge and share some of the lessons. I've learned On how to host a good meeting and how to host a meeting so the first thing I would say is I choose to use my personal room with Webex so we have licensing. I have a personal room which is usually like company name Dot Webex Slash Penny Dot Conway and if you have a paid for license. That's a great option to use. I would imagine that's part of Cisco's free license option that they have coming up but there's other things like events you can have a a large event setup where you can get registrations and all of that kind of stuff will tackle all that on another episode. I just want to talk about the personal room us for you to easily set up and run a meeting and have it be a good use of everybody's time because rob did you know. I'm GONNA pull out some stats for you. Did you know that on average we have not wait like as a whole people in companies have sixty two meetings per month and thirty three point? Nine one percent of those are considered a waste of time. Know the second spare Erstad. I probably only because Those that are may or may not be familiar with Webex but it also There's metrics and insights that you can pull that will show you the number of meetings you personally were involved with how many hosted and and I pulled that up and I was like. Are you kidding me and now to hear that second stat that it's that's not all platform? Sometimes people are just really bad about like having a in. That should be another podcast. Like how do you like no one to have a meeting and want? It should be an email if you don't have the right. You don't have to say no just not meeting experience. Okay so I use my personal room and browsers do matter When it comes to using Cisco Webex.

"Good Morning Rob. Good morning pending where backfired second episode on squad cast which I'm actually super stoked about that was not a plug at all for so you hear that squad cast a so. A lot has happened. it's almost like we started the segment. What the tech just happened and we were finding general information. That's out there and now it has become what the heck just happened around Ed. Nineteen and our new normal. As like I said in my intro. Seventy five percent of Americans are estimated to be home now. Many of them are working remotely. It is crazy and you know the the President delivered a pretty important speech just yesterday and really kind of talked about the grave situation as it keeps escalating now and limit what the damage is gonNa be and now the realization of just how long this is going to last. And what? The implication on the workforce and we are all settling into that new normal. And what do we do from this point on? How are we going to continue being productive How are we going to limit what is happening economically and you know what is the impact of the New Care Act? You know I was reading an interesting article this morning. It was obviously the economic impact of this has a lot of people concerned and thinking about the future and what the future holds for both their companies as well as employees that like us that work for companies and something that was semi comforting is the thought of going back to work right now. If everyone were to just say you know what will handle this? As it comes were reopening. We're going back to work Could actually have a far greater economic impact than if everyone just followed the rules and kind of took the guidance of their state and local officials and federal officials to just stay home. Because what could happen is everyone reopens business. As usual and then there becomes a potential surgeons of what's going on at a an astronomical rates more than it is today which will hurt us economically far more than if we just get through this time period. Tackle it the best. We know how today and then recover once. It's safe to go back outside and for lack of a better time this up because I mean you you watch how that curve is going and I don't want we don't want to go down that you know we got some really important things about here But I just WanNa stay right now because we are talking topical things as you see that curve almost ninety degree I mean they are trying desperately to level that curve in China and Korea with the they've done some pretty drastic things to level the curve. But we need to get to point and they you know the models are showing that we can get there. But it's GonNa be a lot longer than what we anticipated. And it has to be by following the the social distancing in the stay at home Laws that coming down now so it's really important in your right. If all of a sudden everybody ignored it and they started going back to work. The the implications of the economic economical implications of that are just far far greater because will spike so stay at home social distance. Be Responsible so we can curve this thing together. And that's what it's GonNa take. It's GONNA take a village to make sure that we're all working together to get it right. And then you know in the meantime I I think it was The end of correct me. If I'm wrong here at the end of last week early this week that we really started to see all of the details for the Care Act which was passed. Which for those of you. Who aren't familiar with the term of Care Act. It is the two trillion dollar stimulus package. That was just put through recently. So Rob I think you have some high level information on that How it's affecting Small businesses individuals to basically encourage people that there is some sort of stopgap measures being put in place to protect you. While you're following through with the social distancing practices it's very extensive act. That went out and this is kind of the first wave of what they're doing so that we can get through the first two to three months of the impact of covert nineteen so it's more of a quantitative easing. That's going to be going on here. And they are trying to inject some liquidity into the economy so that people can survive so that like you said it's a two trillion dollar package and it comes in a lot of different forms so there's going to be the individual relief that a lot of us will get you know if you're making seventy five thousand dollars or under you're GonNa get your twelve hundred dollars. Think it's twenty four hundred dollars for a married couple and then it goes down to that until I. I'm not exactly sure the point that you don't get any relief from it but it's it's designed so the the folks that really really need it Are Going to get some an influx of cash into their hands to get them through that this is not by any means the remedy for. It's to get you over a little bit of a Hump And then there's also a lot of loans that are going to be Helping out a lot of the small businesses out there as well as some of the larger corporations and they've really kind of focused on certain specific industries to for that And again the the the small business being one of the big Benefactors of it Some of the areas that got hit the most. I mean you're looking at the oil and gas you look in. Aerospace Aaron Travel Insurance companies are getting hit bad. The banks the auto industry got hit a chemical and an agricultural got hit. And of course we know that that healthcare so again if you look at the the care act it's designed to help a lot of those industries in different ways and As Penny suggested if you get an opportunity you know. There's not a whole lot more going on out there. You know. We're not going to movies and stuff like that so once pick it up and just take a look at it educate yourself. I think it'll do some brands literally. No one has the exceeds anymore that they don't have time to do you are no longer. It's like eliminated the busy. Excuse you are no longer allowed us a time limit. You got in our industry to what we saw again. That was a major influx. So as the there was the mobilization the remote workforce and everybody headed home We had talked about this and podcast the different parts of the technology that got hit and we. We really worried about bandwidth. And there's they're continuing to work on that and also anything that has to do with data driven models. It's impacting that as well looking at the collaboration tools collaboration models and of course some of the other things that people looking into now is anything with a single source of truth And that's like your dashboards where you can go get all of your information in one area so a lot of companies are looking into different areas and if they're looking for ways if they're you know they want to really build themselves out and help themselves moving forward through this whole crisis Again take this cares. Act The stimulus some of these loans and may be invested into that kind of technology to help your small business in your your company through that and so that's what today's episode is really about. It was kind of a long lean to that. But it's you know talking more about those collaboration tools that we talked about specifically talking about Cisco'S WEBEX and Penny is one of our local experts. On which is awesome because we've been muddling with a little bit in our company or else speak for myself and I won't throw anyone last year. I already said in my intro. You may be attending some awful meetings lately. I have posted fear. And he's like you need to learn how to do that. And you know Penny said. I think I haven't remedy for you. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA help you out with some tips and tricks him. So Bat is intro for you and to talk about a little bit about Webex and some of the cool things that people can do to help them through these Okay I will. I'M GONNA start this by saying a first of all what my use cases for Webex of course as a company we have Cisco Webex as one of our platforms we have. It's an ad in my outlook. Those that are listening. Even if you don't use it I'm sure you're very familiar with it by name By any means but something that I found interesting is that In a survey I read eighty.

"Welcome back to season two of zeroed IPO. Today we have a very exciting couple of entrepreneurs on the show. Rachel typical graph the founder of Mick Massey founder and CEO who was called by Entrepreneur magazine one of the fifty most daring entrepreneurs and we also have eric yuan the founder and CEO of Zoom. Which as we all know has grown into a beam of video conferencing. Yeah I think what's very interesting? Here is both enterprise software entrepreneurs one who is earlier in her journey another one who is later on in his journey. He's gone public taking it public but still has a lot of memory about what it was like to be at her stage so. I think this is going to be very very interesting. Let's introduce our guests grey. Eric Yuan is the CEO and founder of Zoom and has grown zoom into a little bit of a big company. I think it's very small compared to what you're going to become. That's how he thinks about it right down. Eric started the company in two thousand eleven and appealed last year and at the IPO. The company had a market cap of a little over nine billion now less than a year later. It's at twenty one billion on the public markets. Tha that's more that's more more a little bit more. That's great that's growth node and never look at him. I never let's right notice. This market cap is not sustainable revenue. Would you talk about the revenue growth? Revenue growth is very impressive. It's about on the order of about one hundred percent year over year kind of up on a six hundred plus million dollar revenue year consensus estimates. We're not seeing anything out of the ordinary here. That is very impressive. And when you can see that kind of growth that kind of scale that's something. That's very exciting. Well before we go any further. I want to introduce Rachel. Tipo graph the CEO and founder of MIC MAC which is a fast growing startup. And there's a lot of things I want to ask you about and talk to You. About part of the purpose of this show is to hear from you about how you're growing the company. What your hopes and aspirations for at our and any kind of obstacles that you see ahead that perhaps not me but the other two leaders of public companies might be able to chime in with some experience. Let me ask you to describe MC MAC for our listeners and talk a little bit about what the company does share so mic. Mac were a marketing ECOMMERCE platform fortune. Five hundred brands license our software to better understand their consumers by connecting digital invest minced. Online retail insights. So essentially when I put a dollar into facebook what does that mean for my performance at Walmart for example so my clients span. Campbell's Hasbro Lego L'OREAL Nestle essentially. If you sell it Amazon Target Walmart you will become my client because you live in darkness with retail data. Let Me Brag a little bit about you. If I may at age twenty four you became the global director of digital and social media at gap which seems pretty young to have that role. I wasn't doing much of anything at twenty four. I think I was taken out the mail for running that role at gap at the time. But then you walked away from that to start this company out of your apartment. I believe in Brooklyn that must have been a difficult decision similarly Eric. You had a big role at Webex. You were leading the engineering team. You had hundreds of engineers. You said your wife. Hey I think I need to go start this company. And she didn't like the idea yes. She's sort of an online at likely. That idea by almost field to graduate was twenty. Four years ordered the three of us. Degenerates Rachel Rachel? With killing by the way the other thing that I love about what I've heard about your career is Gary Chuck who was an investor. My company and I believe invested in yours describes you as a fucking gangster quote unquote and lucky to have his support. Let's talk about MC MAC and the growth of online video and the commercialization of online video. Obviously Eric has a massive video business. What you're trying to do with mic-mac some people describe it as infomercials for the web. I've heard the term mini-martial Did you come up with that may I coined? Yeah and the idea is that it was very hard before mic-mac to see video and buy something you had to jump through hoops. And the bounce rate was like above ninety percent when you click through and now with mic-mac the bounce rate comes down to often like just ten percent right and a thesis of MIC. Mac was I was a gap. I was seeing the growth of video. I was seeing the change in the customer journey so gap Dot Com. The home page was the most traffic web page when I started when I left the product. Detail pages were seen five. X. Amount of traffic so all of a sudden all of these landing pages were actually becoming the heartbeat of conversion but no senior leader was paying attention to them and then finally the rise of Amazon so the early signs at the major retailers were about to become new wall gardens. And if you talk to major. Cpt brands they would be investing hundreds of millions of dollars whether is in digital video social paid search programmatic and having no idea what the outcome was on the other side. So in your case you have this insight and you know it's a good insight. I'm going to start a company but you leave a massive company and now you're this tiny little entity all by yourself and you have your your powers. You have the insight that the bravest lady in the Roman. You're like little little the honest truth. We said we tell the truth. And you have these massive companies that could easily swoop in and take your idea like talk to us about. How do you navigate that? And I want to hear also from Eric because he was in the same boat as you leaving Webex. Yeah it starts with an insight. That's not the hard part. The hard part is executed and initially. My competitor advantage right is speed to market. I'm nimble I can move faster fast. Forward all of a sudden I start proving myself and then other companies begin to pay attention. Because obviously if I'm successful must mean that there's a larger opportunity out there. How did that make you feel what was your reaction to the you know? The encroachment potential encroachment. My first reaction was. This is a good thing because you don't want to be a lone ranger business. It means you're you're not doing something to market if you're the only one marquette so I was excited I'm like yeah like competition bring it on but then when you look at the size of those companies so I currently thirty employees my competitors have upwards of five thousand employees. Then you start to get a little bit scared because they could put you know. Fifty salespeople against the southwest territory and then no one at Kirk Dr Pepper. We're GonNa talk to me and those are. The dynamics began to change for me last year. Which was a like. I got a suit up. Because there's people who can be louder and market right now. I still have the utmost confidence in my product. I have most confidence in my ability to lead but the reality is that they're bigger than me. Eric talked pretty shortly to catch up. Because speed everything up today have thirty. You may not know in five years. Probably have five thousand or six thousand you know more than your competitors as

cook more capable if they were already free during this crisis somebody in the chat room into the Citrix is may webex which is a very high and conferencing solution a lot of businesses use free for the duration so there's a lot of choices hangouts works pretty well it's social it's designed to do something like that yeah we've used it on our podcasts and can get a little chaotic all of these can get chaotic because people are used to not getting the physical Q. sitting across from each other like I want to talk next in that kind of thing zoom is good cheap talk show says we switch from webex zoom zoom rooms is very cool again if you're gonna do zoom though you'll want to check the default settings and maybe adjust them so the people can't just hop in disrupt your conference there's a go to meeting still LogMeIn has that there's a lot of good choices out there because so many of us have tried or one work from home and many businesses do that it's just the kind of the way the business is changed in the last few years so the timing not the no good time to get a virus but that the timing is a little bit better because we have widespread high speed internet we have a lot of tools to make this possible house parties fun for just family get togethers update people a lot of fun it was designed for the Youngs so they could have you know you how millennials like socialize buzz in Huntington beach California we'll import the tech guy but I am well how are you buzz old man home like a lot of the people on the struggling artists and all my shows have been called so sorry show me but but but okay let me let me get all get updated here time to watch TV you know how to forget about it one of the one of the interesting things is people who have no stores to have started selling online artists were start selling on musicians who started selling online if you had that set up already is there's an opportunity here you know to to continue your business online instead of in person I have a business online that's good thank you thank goodness you got it yeah yeah now you get the word out well yeah but I'm trying to advertise on Facebook things like that because you don't stop orders are trickling in on its own yes your what's your website will give you a plug some bugs right dot org or dot net but why no buzz rhino is that is that your real name well you to Hawaii and that's cool yeah yeah yeah are you gonna my tie fighter these are great because I love these that was the hardest thing I've ever done I was dared to do this tiki mug and I ended up what I wanted to show the world what I could do so I ended up creating a the most complicated tiki mug ever make that's three pieces can different colors I would hang out at Salem a trader Sam's in Disneyland and we are talking about all these people are rather Star Wars fans are like okay I mean I could do that yeah I have a my car in my head you know Chad you know totally major type by Michael we don't have any money I left there with like four hundred people were talking how to do it you have to that's the problem with a lot with this your particular art which I love is you kind of I think it's probably sells in person better than it would on line because people see it they go I gotta have that well yeah because the lamp looks so cool yeah that was how big they are tell you can you know and I'm I'm now we sell it actually a working bamboo perpetual motion found what I'm looking at it right now they got the flame of the guys had to get the little all these are great I love that I want this buzz rhino dot net give your the the the the lamp the the lamp link goes to me at the store and thank goodness thank goodness there's a lot of artists who you know are going to set up an Etsy store now you know at least you had you got that gone so good man it's a great thank you are you know what I part three D. printer to an extent you're putting right now perfect I'm wearing a T. shirt so it's all meant to be I got my Tory Roberts T. shirt on right now all right you're all alone I don't know we have a when we were in the car while last summer we bought a giant totem that signal or are looking for him to have I hope it brings us good luck it's beautiful hand carved it well because it's not about the love that you put into a medically right exactly right so you bought a fire TV stick what do you what do you want to do okay so I got a hold of pioneer elite plasma but it has if you want input so that's where the fires because ever get rid of that pioneer league they stopped making them is one of the best TV's ever made I love it yeah everybody comes over just tripped out on it but he's all into these curved LED deals and whatever anyway so it's quite it's quite into that and then I have an old a Yamaha receiver but the problem is it's not HDMI yeah I went through all the I. R. profiled I finally found one that turned on and turned off my Yamaha receiver so I figure okay actually I definitely have it on the right input because I just checked with my Xbox sounds coming out of the input that I have the fire stick plugged into so I know that input is on the correct setting but it controls when I press the on off but with fires to get turned on and off the receiver and the TV so it's that's right but both fell no sound it should normally succumbs to the HDMI so how are you connecting the are you getting the video into the into the TV you're not going through the AV receiver now it's plugged into the TV in the TV okay so there on most TV I don't know if it's on this pioneer there is one HDR when HDMI port labeled ARC audio return channel you want to put that up fire stick in that actually no that's not the solution if the TV may or may not have optical out if it does then you could pipe the optical out from the TV into the AV receiver and I think that what I have found that with optical for yeah so it but it's not working the sound on the fire stick is not working it was one of the devices I mean I have Xbox I got everything hooked up to so you've got so that let me just get my mind think this through the the for the fire stick is feeding the TV speakers because it's feeding in the HDMI the TV speakers and the TV screen but you don't want to come through the speakers are works of the speakers are right no no no cell phones not even the TV speakers no I don't have those set up you know himself if you did I'm thinking they would work so but what you wanna do you wanna get out to your Yamaha receivers he can hear through the stereo so twisted Mr saying you've gotta let me think the TV is what we want is you wanna get the audio that the TV speakers would get we want to get them into the Yamaha that optical should work if it's coming out of the T. V. it should feed the Yamaha make sure the opposite to optical so that it's getting its input for the optical right right and you don't hear anything no is it a setting in the TV it might be sitting in the TV to use external speakers you know I'm saying I can check that yeah because the ideas come in in the TV though along with the signal it's unless you say otherwise gonna try to play through its own speaker you don't have this connect is you don't know if it's doing that but I bet you've connected you hear the sound so what we wanna do is tell the TV no no don't play that in your internal speakers play that through the external speakers effect look in the settings for a way to send the audio to the optical out and then that will get into the receiver the receiver should play you may have to do some synchronization to make sure that the lipsticks could probably won't just right you could you know is not getting the Amazon came directly from the fire TV is good all right what is set up with every other device.

News director here at north state public radio. Good morning, we begin in the town of paradise which was nearly leveled in November's deadly campfire. There are not many homes still standing but for residents whose homes did survive. They've been moving back in one of the many challenges. They face is the kid drink the water because it has been Zine in benzine causes cancer. We're getting a sense of how long and how much money it will take to fix this problem. Two years and three hundred million dollars. According to water officials. These are the kinds of issues that survivors in the tubs fire in cinema county have already gone through that fire happened a year and a half ago raising several thousand homes, and Santa Rosa, one of the neighborhoods. Hardest hit was Coffey park from care. CD reporter Adia white has more on families returning to the community there. Joan Mortenson shows me around her Coffey park home. Now nearly rebuilt for entire street is a construction zone. The houses at various stages in the process, we look at her new kitchen windows house, the charred Redwood tree on the street next to hers, the houses didn't burn. She tells me that her house nearly didn't even as much as she wants to say about the night of the fire. The rest is to painful. This was my first house. I bought it. So after I got divorced. It really meant a lot to me in terms of my independence, and I loved this house Mortensen always knew shoot rebel the house. Only her opinions about how she would do it. If change the dream has really changed a little bit. It's not exactly the way it was. And that's the thing. They're more windows now and added laundry room, and it's a cheer yellow instead of gray just a few streets over from Mortenson, Jim and join Neil moved back into their new home on February thirteenth. Jim says the move in date was Valentine. Hines present for his wife. Joy, they were offered a good amount of money for the property. Jim says he was tempted at first, but just couldn't are just don't like the idea of the fire might have burned me out. But I, you know, I want to say I came back and came back better than I was that's kind of a matter of personal pride not giving up state data shows over two thousand people left cinema county between twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen largely due to the wildfires. The county lost more people that year than any other county in the state the Neal's neighbors moved Aaron not long after the fires and their lot is overgrown with weeds. But Neal says he and his wife are now much closer with the neighbors who did decide rebuilt after what they've been through relaunched, everything thirty minutes. That is tremendously motion experience, we'd come here and just break down and cry. Then we all did of the three thousand homes in Santa Rosa that we're destroying the tops fire.

I'm gonna say video conference call and you're gonna say oh from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Livio conference software company is doom goes public on Thursday, promising to make customers happier with their meetings hope springs eternal, right? Most video calls are still full of pauses delays garbled audio and unusable interfaces. Even though we really need this tech right now a Gallup poll last year found that seventy percent of people all over the world work remotely at least once a week. And globalization means a lot more remote offices and bureaus Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. He said videoconferencing tech is still pretty hard in terms of reliable bandwidth and video compression, and then there's just the human factor. People just aren't sure it's worth the trouble. Most people regardless of generation are a bit hesitant in terms of doing a call over video. So it's getting people interested comfortable with the technology and also showing value. So. If you're just doing it to be face to face, that's one thing. But if you leverage the ability to share the screen collaborate in real time, those are all additional benefits that you can bring with videoconferencing that that drives up the value of that video experience. Yeah, it's so interesting because we've been swimming upstream with this technology for so long is it possible that it is actually not the right solution? I think there certainly is a need for this. Because we know that depending on what studies you look at anywhere between about forty and sixty percent of communication is nonverbal. We as humans can both recognize and create almost a quarter of a million facial expressions without that video piece, you're missing out on a huge portion of the conversation by just having audio how much money is there. Do you think for the company that actually gets this technology, right? The whole thing with employee collaboration and putting a dollar amount on it is. Squishy when we'd use video in collaboration way. It's sort of like, well, you know, we saved this money on travel, and maybe we got to market a little bit faster too. And we had fewer meetings and things like that. But it's really hard to put a dollar sign on that, sir. But do we have a sense of how much companies spend just in kind of annual dollars on WebEx and solutions like that? It varies on the size of the organization. I will say that companies today because of this fragmented nature of the collaboration space, particularly related to video a relatively large companies losing about a million dollars a year in lost productivity because of this challenging video conferencing environment in terms of getting the call started on time getting the people into the call. That's very challenging in fact, some companies spend upwards of eight to ten minutes fiddling with buttons and getting people onto calls and that trans. Late into real money. Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. I should say there are high hopes resume in terms of its modern cloud based tech an interface, and as an investment, unlike just about every other tech company going public this year zoom is profitable and has had user growth over one hundred percent each year. And now for some related links zoom full name zoom video communications is planning to raise six hundred twenty six million dollars in its peo-. It's valued at eight point seven billion dollars currently and despite its actual profitability and user growth that's still less than the weeks. Other big IPO Pinterest expected to file on Thursday proposed valuation of ten point six billion dollars Pinter's hopes to raise one point two billion in its public outing.

I'm so glad I did listen to and others because I would not be, you know, in the way, I'm because entrepreneurs they're so much fun to be around. But they also they do think they know it all and we always have to do that dance. We know you know, what all we know, you know, a lot. But is there one thing at night that again, you lose sleep over and if they can say that then we can fold in and help them with that one area. We can usually see on paper and beating with them where they're shy. But aspirin. I don't like that. I mean, people don't like that. Like you need help here. Right. I don't wanna hear that. Instead, they wanna go I could use a little bit of help here. And then we fold in and provide that support to them. But it it takes a while. It's trust. I mean, a business as you know, it's it's a person's baby. You know, it's there and so not everybody gets to hold that baby. And so it's a matter of trust. It's a matter of time it's being professional and friendly all the time with our officers and our staff, and our people it's understanding when mistakes happen and have that kind of relationship when there is a mistake that's made that the call tell you. 'cause maybe when that mistake is I made we can help them out if they put it under the carpet at a certain point. There's only so much magic we can do with a tax at you. There's only so much magic.

"Slash choose WebEx. It's the day after the state of the union, and that means that tucked into the opinion section of newspapers across the country. You'll find cartoons of President Trump at the podium. Some emphasizing his looks some poking fun at his remarks and others focusing on his tenth relationship with house. Speaker Nancy Pelosi editorial cartoonist have a long history in this country. The earliest political caricatures date back as far as the eighteenth century. But the job is changing and the people with the pen are also changing the speed, and the repetitively and the very few people between me and publication has just changed dramatically that Sydney, Wilkinson pulse. Prize winning editorial cartoonists and my former colleague at the Philadelphia, Inquirer and the daily news. She started off telling me what the process of political cartooning was like in the past and how much it's shifting today. I would come in draw off of. The news that I read in the newspaper. I gave it to someone who would take a photo of it. Somebody else would take V locks of that give it to the layout people would lay it onto page, which would be photographed and sent to the printing presses, and it would not be out obviously until the next morning, and I would send it out via fax or mail through my syndicate around the country who would get it days later. So like last night, which was the state of the union address. I drew during the state of the union tweeted them out before the talk was over. And then today, I'm drawing one of the images which will be in the paper and online and on our site tomorrow. You're you're like live sketching events as they happen. Sometimes I mean, that's what you're doing last night, essentially. Correct. What about the political climate? When you first started was the craft more or less partisan than it is now, or is it the same people ask that a lot. And it just depends what you mean by partisan. But when you're talking about a good editorial cartoonist that person usually has a very strong point of view. Maybe it's a moderate point of view. But usually it is on one side left to right consistently. It's not that you can't criticize the other side or don't criticize the other side. But each cartoonist has a point of view, just like writers, you know, commentators usually have a strong point of view. There are so few newspaper political cartoonist now and one thing that you do is you don't just talk about Trump national politics, but you're also drying and opining on issues related to Philadelphia where you live and work and wondering what the loss of political. Cartoonists means for those local civic conversations in newspapers throughout the country. Well, in my opinion, it's total disaster. Of course. So all newspapers and websites should have a local cartoonists. But it it's true. I mean, my cartoons used to really be parts of the conversation in Philadelphia, and they still are to a certain degree. We just had a big indictment of local political figure, and I've already done two cartoons on that. And I'll do more senior. You're actually the first woman to receive a Pulitzer for your editorial cartoons. What's been the experience of being a woman in this field? And that obviously has been dominated by men. And I'm wondering if that's changing I think it's changing it's unfortunately, right now for the kind of job I used to have I'm I'm on contract. Now used to do six cartoons a week. I I only do four right now. But fulltime editorial cartoonists are. Not. It's not a growing profession. To say the least. So there is an opportunity so much in that traditional model for new people to come in whether they're male or female or minority your weight, or whatever that's not where new visual social commentary is taking place back in June. Pittsburgh post gazette is rob Rogers was fired after publishing a cartoon that was critical of Trump. Is there a line and political Horton's well, that's not the line? I think what happened to rob as he got a new publisher and the publisher had a different point of view than the previous editorial point of view of the newspaper, and he moved to change that editorial point of view throughout the paper from what I understand from rob. And elsewhere, the publisher said, you can stay if you draw cartoons that I like rob to his great credit said, no, I can't do that. So he was out of a job. They have hired a cartoonist who is more in line apparently with the publisher's point of view. And as they say the person who owns the presses gets to pick the cartoons. So that's what happened to him in the past. It's been my experience that newspapers generally higher cartoonist who are vaguely in line with what the papers point of view is. So a cartoonist can do a variety can just go ahead and cartoon without feeling like they're always at war with with the publisher. Sure did the other threat to cartoonist is violence. I mean people remember the attack on the French satirical newspaper. Charlie Hebdo in two thousand fifteen over a cartoon that moment changed the way, you think about your work or the way you handle yourself when you're when you're doing your work, not really I really do believe despite everything in the United States that we have a great deal of freedom of speech. And generally speaking that's been respected. I mean with the gun situation the way it is no one, no. No one is safe after an argument, but I have felt particularly after the Danish cartoons in two thousand and five. I was on some panels some public panels at the university of Pennsylvania and the free library of Philadelphia that were open to anybody. And there were not armed guards at the door. And I I did feel nervous going up and being on on stage in front of you know, several hundred people and anyone could've walked in. But it's free speech. You take your you do take some risks. And I certainly haven't taken the same kind of risk says what the Danish cartoonists, and certainly Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and editors suffered that was a total tragedy. Signaled you still love love your job and wanna keep doing it for as long as you can do it. Well, there are days. We'll everybody's days. But in general, I mean, do you? Doing this thing. Well, it is it's such a privilege. I mean, honestly, it's sort of like art therapy to be Frank. You get up you have your coffee, and instead of just grinding your teeth, and and having to go book, a psychiatrist I can go up to the drawing board and draw away. All my irritations with the world, and I hope that, you know, some of them hit receptive audiences and people like them, and that they become part of the conversation. And that, you know, that's that's a really fun actually me Wilkinson is a Pulitzer prize winning at Oriel cartoonists, you can find her work at the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia daily news and also.

"Like you like, oh, I change very checked it and do a pool. Right. Like, it doesn't mean. That's like two quick of an innovation. Right. Like, it's I added a feature check it out. That's a different type of thing. But notebooks like you said sort of tend to be more iterative in exploratory. And I think that makes a lot of sense. What is the collaboration look like played with data lower? But I haven't played with it with other people. So how real time is it? You know, as it every word every character every cell pretty much every character that you type that you could get up sending several characters at once. I don't know exactly how that works, but more or less every character as type it. It's getting synchronize to your collaborators. And so on we have this mode where you can actually follow. What your collaborator is doing like you? They have a little avatar in the top. Right corner. If you click on it he'll start tracking them. So as they make edits you'll see them real time. That's pretty awesome. Have you seen people do anything or her people like using this for teaching or say like live presentations where everyone else can come in like are here? We're all sharing the the notebook in all the students while along or the participants wallo. It's definitely something that you can do. And that I think some people have done that. It sounds so much better than slides over WebEx. Right. You know, like here opened in your browser and follow along as we do it. I mean, one thing that was kind of cool was we had this little like internal workshop one of our data. Scientists did a presentation on data science just like some overview stuff, and he was doing it data lower. And there's like a big difference between just like watching what he's doing if you screen sharing versus just being able to follow him as he moves along. And that was really cool. Yeah. It seems like there's a lot of possibility. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think definitely nice. So I guess this puts it kind of in the realm of Google collaborative which I actually haven't used very much. I don't know if that has live collaboration, but I'm kissing by the name that it does. Yeah. I would assume. So I haven't used it. I have opened it. It looks have just a new format for Google docs or sheets or slides except it's a notebook instead of one of those things. Pretty nice thing to have. Yeah. That's cool too. Haven't done much with Google clamato. But I haven't heard a ton of people talking about it. But it does seem pretty nice. Yeah. Cool to maybe we can dig into some of the features that makes data lower cool. So there's a few things that caught my attention. Maybe bring them up, and then you can describe what they are. And how they work in weather, cooler, whatever. So one of them is smart code completion sort of context aware code completion. Basically all the code completion..
