Igniting potential in families, learning, and creativity with technology

Together Time

For quite some time now, I have said that we are more connected online but we are not together very often. On my way home yesterday, I came across Video Chat Rounds, a new facebook video chat platform that seems to be promising. The service affords people the opportunity for more together time online. I like that. I don’t have to jump in to a virtual world and use an avatar to spend time with someone. The platform allows you to do things together (play games, surf, watch videos, etc.). There have been other sites that have attempted to do this but none have been bold enough to integrate with facebook. I believe rounds (http://rounds.com) has a lot of potential to give families and friends more together time online.

I had some together time with a colleague yesterday. Despite being uber-connected via technology we needed together time to truly connect. What together time will you take today to truly connect?
