My favorite part of being a publisher is getting to promote well deserving charities each year around the holidays.  In the spirit of the season I wanted to take a moment to recognize and promote some charities that were founded by members of the telepresence industry and a couple that are near and dear to some of us at the Human Productivity Lab and Telepresence Options.  The list includes: Bicycles for Humanity co-founded by Pat Montani, CEO & Co-founder of IP-V Gateways, Vacations for Veterans founded by Chris Carr, Director of Video Markets at MASERGY, The Fluoride Action Network which I am supporting, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, .  If anyone knows of any other worthy efforts supported by members of the industry then please pass them along and we will add them to the list.
