WHAT: Request for help to master Webcam use for building relationships
Using Web cameras -- slow motion Internet TV with sound -- is a leap in the quality of worldwide communication.
It appears to be the next, wonderful step for better listening and almost-face-to-face relationships.
Internet e-mail has accelerated the Jewish-Palestinian public peace process. It is resulting in more and more on-the ground meetings and cooperation.
In addition, Web sites have been useful for interested women and men, including students, to discover helpful information and one another.
Yesterday we installed a Web camera with built-in microphone in our computer. Right away, we spoke with and saw a newspaper person at the southern tip of
Our Logitech QuickCam Pro 300 camera with built-in microphone and software cost less than $100. There are less-costly models. We have begun communicating via Yahoo! Messenger, whose software was included with the camera, and which can be download free from http://www.yahoo.com. It is rather easy to use.
We'd like to hear from you if:
1. you already use Web camera communication, and have ideas.
2. you begin using it, and wish to stay in touch.
3. you know Palestinians or Jews -- especially youth -- who are already using Webcams or might be interested.
We are beginners. Your help would be appreciated.
Yours, Libby and Len
