Cisco and WebEx

This morning's announcement that Cisco has agreed to acquire WebEx makes it a bit clearer as to the direction Cisco is taking for its evolution. Web-based online meetings are what WebEx has been serving up to its customers, mainly small & medium businesses (SMBs), and this acquisition has a potential to turn small businesses completely online. The advent of Google Apps is but a modest start, also in that direction. And, Microsoft Live has been online for quite some time now.

Makes you also wonder about the kind of value-added applications that would succeed 20-25 years from now.
