This is a very straightforward article. It presents an optimistic view of the use of video in order to enhance communication between people working together. In this work, the video itself was used as the shared medium where activity was conducted.

However helpful the use of video may be (and in fact I think it is) there are also uses regarding how to use the video. The authors found some of those issues in the form of users not wanting to be videotaped and therefore hindering the usability of the system.
