Webex worth US$3.2billion?
The dot.com boom is back!
Cisco have bought Webex for an eye-popping sum! I’ve used Webex once. It’s a nice interface for saving a train/aeroplane trip to a meeting you never really wanted to go to anyway.
You can see some presentation slides, chat with participants and via webcam, see what’s going on and participate visually.
It’s all the things I can do for free with instant message/talk software, and a webcam.
$3.2 billion. Really??
UPDATE – Rafe Needleman has similar thoughts but fears that Webex has had its day.
