When you work for a big fancy corporation with unlimited resources like Yahoo, people routinely set up conference calls. Everybody calls in to an 800 number, and it’s a party line. It’s great for planning, brainstorming, and having virtual meetings.
But actually, anyone can do that. For free. I use FreeConferencecall.com. It’s great for setting up family reunions, planning events, reuniting old friends, scheduling an intervention, and so on.
You sign up with your e-mail address. Everybody in the group calls the number, enters the code, and boom: free conference call!
