Working on Multi-Site Projects, Staying in Touch

I’m in Israel right now, doing an assessment. That means that I’m the one at “another” site for my US projects. Staying in touch is hard. I’m between 7 and 10 hours ahead of everyone I need to work with. Not easy to stay in contact.

I do some reasonable things while I’m here: rent a cell phone, use email and vmail when necessary, even IM. But Elizabeth Keough has an even better way to use IM. See IM is your friend.

Everyone sets their Yahoo Status message to show what they’re doing.

How smart is that?
