The history of video conferencing in its earliest form goes back to the 1960?s, when AT&T introduced the Picturephone at the World?s Fair in New York. While viewed as a fascinating curiosity, it never became popular and was too expensive to be practical for most consumers when it was offered for $160 a month in 1970.

Everything was going great...we were both working from home and enjoying small successes.
