Portfolio company promotion-collaboration service

As you all know, part of a VC’s job is to promote their portfolio companies. And yes, even though Expertcity is no longer a portfolio company since it was bought by Citrix, I would like all of you to know about the new collaboration service that the company is launching, GoToMeeting, which will be FREE until July. At the end of the day, I love the service and product and that is why I thought you would like to try it out. Yes, it will be in a field competing with the likes of WebEx and Placeware. However, the company’s design philosophy since I invested in them 5 years ago is the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) method. This means simplicity in terms of usage and pricing. The service is designed to take advantage of the ad-hoc collaboration where an IM or email turns into a working session. Here is an article talking more about the service.
