If you know me, you know I hate meetings. The only thing I hate more than meetings, is conference calls! I have always found meetings to be a bunch of people sitting in a room discussing things that they could have actually been doing. I guess there is some benefit to some face to face brainstorming but it usually tapers off into a bunch of idle chat before someone puts the meeting out of it's misery. Conference calls on the other hand are just a waste of time , energy and modern electronics!
