ConceptBoard: The Future of Remote Working Tools

cb_logo_300ppiIn the past decade, technology innovation has been one of the main catalysts for change in the way that we work. Tools like email, instant messaging, Skype, productivity and task management systems are making it easier than ever to stay connected (and focused) outside of the office – whether you’re at home, a coffee shop, or in a plane, train or automobile.

According to one estimate by the American Community Survey, telecommuting has risen 79 percent between 2005 and 2012 and now makes up 2.6 percent of the American work force, or 3.2 million workers. Two+ years later, you can imagine how much this has increased.

WebRTC: Your thoughts requested

Hello TokBox Community,

We have a small favor to ask of you. We’ve pulled together a brief survey about WebRTC that aims to measure the current level of awareness, interest, and activity around the standard and we need your input:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TokBoxWebRTCSurvey

The results will be made public and will reveal:

  • The depth of WebRTC knowledge in the tech community
  • Which features/functionality are considered most important to you
  • How the tech community would like to see the standard develop over time

Added bonus? We’re raffling off five $100 Amazon gift cards to people that have completed the survey (you’re only eligible to win one). So take a few minutes, ponder what WebRTC means to you, and answer our survey. Thanks!
