A meeting can be a great opportunity to collaborate. The nature of how we meet has changed thanks to modern day technology (see Slack, Trello, and other great tools). Embracing technology doesn't always replace good ol' fashioned real-life discussion (aka the robots haven't taken over...yet).
If you do feel like an in person meeting or conference call is necessary, we encourage you to think about how you run meetings. You don't want your attendees to consider lighting the room on fire just to make.it.stop. (not that we've EVER had those thoughts ourselves). Send an agenda ahead of time (and stick to it), leave individualized questions/concerns for private discussion, and always keep your goals in mind.
