Geography is more powerful than technology
A couple of years back I said that Geography is more powerful that history. I also realize that Geography is more powerful that technology. You can overcome distances with online meeting software such as Adobe Connect , Cisco WebEx or video conferencing software. But you people in different parts of the world are going to be in different time zones. You can't change that. You need to be humble enough to understand that and plan around it. Technology is not an answer to all problems faced by distributed teams.
