Video conferencing makes remote meetings possible
ORLEANS -- Selectman John Hodgson worries that either he's speaking so loud that he's shouting, or too softly, when he's using Skype.
The first time he used the remote video conference technology to attend a Board of Selectmen meeting, Hodgson said he found himself holding his iPad up to his mouth to speak into the microphone. The second time, Jan. 8, he made adjustments. "We moved some furniture around," Hodgson said of his off-site location.
Hodgson and Finance Committee member Mark Carron are the first town committee members in Orleans, and among the first on the Cape, to take advantage of a change in state law allowing off-site meeting attendance via Skype or other video conferencing software.
