Reduce government travel by installing web conferencing software and cameras in all federal agencies. By installing one dedicated service in every federal building like connect now by adobe we could share information and hold mini-meetings government wide. Additionally, the system could be open to the public so they can listen in to meetings that they might have interest in. The current live meeting that we currently use is limited and closed. Virtual meetings could replace a lot of the travel we currently take and meetings can be held without being in the office. Meetings could be held via blackberry or from home or on the road.
