SXSW on Lunch
Rate and Review SXSW Panels and Parties


Event Description:
Australia has suffered the 'tyranny of distance' since colonization. Now, for the first time, those barriers are dissolving as the land downunder shifts timezones to be in a virtual playing field.When you login as a virtual avatar there are no international calling codes, no day or night and only the funny accent remains distinctive.Hear how panelists Keren Flavell, Bruce Joy and Santosh Kulkarni spend their time meeting with colleagues and prospective clients in the USA and Europe by teleporting to meetings in seconds, right from their desks in Melbourne, Australia. This discussion will demonstrate how the world is becoming flatter by the day through technology creating a single place for interaction and enterprise.
