Meet DimDim

I admit:  I forgot to ask.

Just where did “DimDim” come from?

I don’t know, but next time I talk to Kevin Micalizzi (kevin-at sign-dimdim.com or on Twitter @meetdimdim), the Community Manager at DimDim I’ll find out.

Truthfully, I don’t spend a lot of time talking about tools (vendors are happy to do that), but I’m often asked about free or affordable web conferencing options.  And most of the time I remind folks that NOTHING is free.

Like many vendors, DimDim offers a free option with premium goodies available for an affordable fee.  And it sounds like they’ve got some noteworthy announcements coming in the near future.

One value worth noting:  you can have up to 20 participants on the free version.  I only know of one other vendor that gives you that much (and I’ll post on them another time).

Selfishly, this means it’s as easy as ever for anybody and everybody to experience the power of presenting virtually…and some portion of them are going to figure out that mastering the medium is part of connecting, engaging, persuading.

Meet DimDim.  And stay tuned.
