Summary:  Summary Some rules apply to good presenting regardless of the medium Web conferencing is not an in-person presentation delivered over the Internet Both have their advantages; understand and exploit them Sametime 7.5 is a no-brainer for IBM Business Partners and a wise choice for customers.
