First of all let me wish you a happy new year … after a few weeks of mince pies, turkey and ‘Vin Chaud’ I have now started on my training plan for the Reading Half Marathon … time to get into shape.

A few of the guys in the Small Medium Business team at Microsoft in the UK have put together a page showing how you could save yourself and your company a little money by using LiveMeeting.

Put simply,  its costs around £50 for a two-person UK-based, one-hour conference (as of December 2008), and you can scale up or down as and when you need to. 

If the travel costs to your next meeting are going to be more than £50 then go along to http://www.microsoft.com/uk/smallbusiness/technology-in-business/mobile-working/office-live-meeting.mspx and do it over LiveMeeting instead … what do you have to lose?
