The problem: the industry has come up with a myriad of collaboration tools over the past two decades from high-definition telepresence to beautifully designed group project management environments. These tools are meant to make it easier for people to collaborate across space and time, but what most share is a failure to gain widespread adoption. Instead, teams revert to audio conference calls or emailing around docs and updates as the “at-hand” and universally available tools of choice, despite the obvious limitations of both.
The challenge to hackers: develop collaboration systems that will enhance teamwork and be appealing in some new ways for people to want to adopt them. Collaboration tools can be for real time or non-real time and for same-space or collaboration at a distance.
